Superintendent Lane’s End of the Year Thanks and Appreciation

The last day of school has many emotions to it.  It is something we as educators look forward to because it is the culmination of our efforts in preparing our students.  It is something we have been waiting for because to be an educator is a vocation that takes all of our efforts and we need to have some down time.  It is a time to say goodbye to the students we have come to care for and maybe worry about.  All these things and more are going through our minds today.
I wanted to  take a moment to say thank you for all that you do.  No matter what your position, you are all a part of the amazing world of children and you will always hold an important place in their lives.  Your efforts have been strong and dedicated, it is obvious when you walk in either building and see the progress that these students are making.  You do this with little gratitude at times but the smile in a student’s eyes is a powerful thing.
For those of you who are leaving us, I wish you all the best of luck as you move on to the next stage of your life.  For those of you who are returning, I am excited about the possibilities and what new things we will accomplish with our students together as a District.
Please take the time to recharge and refresh with family and friends.
These words are not enough to express my gratitude, thank you.
