Dear School Community Members,
Each day when I visit our schools and related activities, I am reminded of how special our Roy-Hart School Community is and how committed they are to our young people and staff.
If you have had the chance to attend one of the concerts over the past few weeks and observed our students singing or playing an instrument, you saw first hand the commitment that has been made by our teachers and families to prepare them to perform. What you may not take into account is how committed our maintenance and custodial staff are in preparing for the events. The set up, cleaning, snow removal and additional supports to make certain we all have a positive experience is notable.
This past Friday, I was invited to the Elementary School to join in an appreciation lunch for the teachers and staff. Dozens of dishes were brought in by our families and PTA members. Throughout my career, I have had a chance to prepare soups and dishes to share through my PTA organizations, but have never seen how the teachers and staff received them. On Friday, I had the chance to observe our staff walk through the buffet line and genuinely share how grateful they were to the people who prepared the food. It was wonderful to observe this interaction.To all those who give of their treasures, talents and time for our young people, I say thank you.
As always, I hope that you will make an effort to reach out and say hello when you see me around the schools and town.
