Holiday Wishes from Supt. Reedy

"However you choose to spend the winter break, I wish you happiness, comfort and rest – well-deserved rest."

Who’s ready for a little time off? Will you be spending it with family and friends? Catching up on your sleep, reading or binge-watching? Traveling or tackling home projects?

However you choose to spend the winter break, I wish you happiness, comfort and rest – well-deserved rest.

It’s been a busy and often challenging semester. We’ve been working hard, and sometimes our efforts may seem overlooked and underappreciated. But they’re not. Believe me, they are not.

Tony Otero who works in our IT Department sent me an inspirational quote following last week's message along with a note that simply stated, “I believe in APS.” Thanks, Tony. I believe in APS, too. Because I believe in the people of APS. I believe in you.

This old quote from President Theodore Roosevelt seems like a good way to wrap up the first half of the 2017-18 school year:

“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

Happy Holidays! See you in 2018!
