Celebrating Our Community of Educators and Supporters

In the final weeks of the 2023-24 school year, I’m filled with gratitude for our incredible staff and community support surrounding our students and schools. This year has showcased the power of collaboration in education, with countless individuals coming together to educate, inspire and empower every student, every day.

In recent weeks, we’ve had the privilege of recognizing and honoring our team of professionals:

  • On Administrative Professionals Day, we celebrated our office staff, whose dedication ensures the smooth functioning of our schools. Their kindness and warmth make us all feel welcomed and supported.
  • May 1 marked School Principal’s Day, a time to acknowledge the visionary leaders guiding our schools. Our principals and assistant principals inspire growth and innovation among teachers and create a welcoming environment where every student can thrive.
  • During National Physical Education Week, we cheered on the teachers and coaches who promote physical activity and teamwork. They understand the importance of a healthy lifestyle and instill confidence and joy of movement in our students.
  • On School Lunch Hero Day, we thanked the our Food Services staff who nourish our students’ bodies and minds. Their dedication and kindness ensure each child receives a nutritious meal, always served with a smile.
  • Of course, Teacher Appreciation Week (May 6-10) is a special opportunity to show our educators gratitude. They lead with empathy, kindness, and love. Our educators provide engaging lessons, spark curiosity, and help students dream big. Thank you to our educators and support staff who ensure we support every student every day.
  • On May 8, we honored our School Nurses. From tending to skinned knees to managing chronic conditions, our nurses provide expert medical care in a comforting manner. They are trusted advocates for student health and wellness.

While these designated days allow us to spotlight specific roles, every school staff member plays an essential role in building a supportive school community where students feel safe, seen, and empowered to learn and grow.

Of course, none of this would be possible without the partnership of our families and communities. Thank you for supporting our schools. Through volunteerism, participation, feedback, and encouragement, you consistently uplift our schools and reinforce our mission. Your belief in our purpose is humbling.

Looking ahead, I am optimistic about what we can accomplish together. When we combine the dedication of our educators and support staff, the care of our families, our strong community partnerships, and the Bluejacket spirit of our students, there is no limit to our potential.

In the very near future, we will celebrate the remarkable Class of 2024. These students have overcome big challenges over the past few years. Through it all, they have demonstrated incredible resilience, courage, and an inspiring commitment to continued growth. We can’t wait to watch as they take on the world—pursuing their passions, embracing new opportunities, and creating a positive impact.

As we think about the future, I invite you all to dream bigger with us. How can we continue to collaborate and elevate the educational experience for every student? Your voice, hopes for the next generation, and partnership are invaluable. Together, we will continue building educational experiences of opportunity and growth for every student, every day.
