Supt. Reedy's Holiday Message to Employees

"I look forward to seeing you back in 2017, reinvigorated and ready to tackle the work that lies ahead."

I just wanted to take a moment to wish you a joyous and safe winter break. You’ve earned it, as have our students. We all deserve a little time away from the classroom or office to rest, regroup, re-energize.

I hope you find what brings you joy this holiday season. I’ll be spending time with family and friends watching silly movies, enjoying traditional meals and catching up on my sleep.  

I’ll also be reflecting on the year that’s winding down. I suspect you’ll do that, too. In some ways, it was a tough year, not just for us but for the entire nation. We witnessed a contentious election. We tragically lost young, bright stars to unimaginable crimes. We dealt – yet again – with financial difficulties.  

On the other hand, we have so much to celebrate. That’s the great thing about working with students. Whether it’s a momentous accomplishment like reading a book for the first time or getting accepted into college, or a small victory like solving a challenging math problem or getting an A on a paper, we get to witness learning, growing, success on a daily basis. That’s a pretty nice job to have.  

Let me take a moment to thank you for all of your hard work during the first half of this school year. Know that you’re valued and that you make a difference.  

I look forward to seeing you back in 2017, reinvigorated and ready to tackle the work that lies ahead. Happy Holidays!
