It’s the time of year when we get together with our friends and family and remember all of the things we are grateful for. Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of the holidays or planned activities, we forget to take advantage of the opportunity to really think about the positive things we have in our lives. Yet, if we take time to reflect, we often realize the most important things are not things, they are the people we interact with daily.
At the beginning of each new school year, teachers and staff are treated to a District Opening Day. The event is usually filled with excitement, motivation, and professional learning to set the stage for an incredible year filled with enthusiasm for teaching and high expectations for student learning and achievement.
