Thank Goodness for Spring Break

"I hope you find time to enjoy the sunshine, the spring blooms and the incomparable blue skies of New Mexico." -- Supt. Reedy

Superintendent Reedy's weekly message to employees

The weather has been beautiful. Or so I hear. Too often lately I go straight from my car to the office to home without taking the time to appreciate the sunshine, the spring blooms, the blue sky. Things have been hectic.  

Thank goodness for spring break!

We’ve all been working so hard in Albuquerque Public Schools. The students are learning, the teachers are teaching and staff is providing tremendous support. It’s been a stressful, worrisome year. A lot of changes and so many unknowns. Yet, we persist. We do so because we know what’s at stake – the future of the children and the community we serve.

I appreciate your effort and your dedication. I really do.

Things are about to get busier. This time of year is chock-full of activity – testing, projects, field trips, concerts, games and meets, graduation, planning for next year. Whew!

So, get some rest during this well-deserved break, and even if you’re working over the next few days, I hope you find time to enjoy the sunshine, the spring blooms and the incomparable blue skies of New Mexico.
