The Supt DishNovember 18, 2016
The holiday season is my favorite time of the year. Thanksgiving is a time that offers us time to reflect on the many blessings we have.
As I reflect on the school year, we are blessed to have such a wonderful staff, a UNIQUE staff. Each of you has dedicated your life to making a difference in our children’s lives. Our students’ successes are due to the impact you have on their education and life. We have had many successes so far; several Ag Science teams have qualified for Area competition, students in elementary science are doing amazing experiments, girls’ cross country qualified for Area and two GHS students participated in the State meet, the Roarin’ Tiger Marching Band was the Sweepstakes winner, the fine arts department is performing the musical “Lil Mermaid” this weekend, our football team won the District and plays in Area tonight, and our girls’ volleyball team went undefeated in District and plays for the State Championship tomorrow!
We have faced many challenges and will continue to face challenges with strength, determination, and with confidence. This is something I remind myself ever day as we work together in achieving our goals. So far, we have met these challenges as reflected with our students’ successes. Challenges are what make life interesting, overcoming them are what make life meaningful.
During the Thanksgiving break, please take time to give thanks for the many blessing we have. We are fortunate to work and live in a supportive and caring community. As you reflect on the year, please remember the difference you make in each other’s life and the lives of our students. For those of you traveling, be safe on the highways.
