FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT O n behalf of the School Board and staff, I want to wish each and every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving! This time of year reinforces how grateful I am to serve the district with so many caring and selfless individuals. It is a blessing to have the opportunity to work for an institution whose sole purpose is to serve children, and every day I witness acts of kindness by individuals throughout our school district and the community. This season of giving is one during which our employees, parents, teachers, staff, school board members and students open their hearts and hands to help others. The unwavering community support helps us rise above external challenges and make a difference. Whether it’s turkeys and food, clothing or toys our community always rallies big to meet the need. While the holiday season rushes in, I encourage you to take time to slow down and enjoy family and friends. This time of year is special and every day is a gift. May God bless all of you and your families this Thanksgiving and may you have a joyous, safe and restful holiday! TI M F ORSON , S UPERIN T EN D EN T OF S C H OOL S , S T.
