Happy Friday and welcome to a three-day weekend! I hope it’s been a good week and that this message finds all of you well. For those that have not been feeling well, you have been in my thoughts and I wish you a speedy recovery. As you may know we’ve had the opportunity to celebrate our transportation department. A sincere THANK YOU to Transportation Director, John Webster, and his team! We know that the work you do every day is critical, and we appreciate your care for students and families.

We are continuing our focus on kindness during the month of February here in the Iron County School District. Kindness, love, generosity and care for each other is dependent on our willingness and ability to “lift” each other: to be aware of the needs around us so that we can share these traits with our families, our colleagues, our students, our community. The link below is to a “One Voice” Children’s Choir video that was produced for United Way. As I watched it, I was reminded of ALL that is happening in our schools… all YOU are doing that helps all of our kids to feel loved, cared for, encouraged and empowered to realize who they are, how important they are, and how vast the possibilities are for their lives and futures: “A Million Dreams.” It is important work, and I am grateful for all you continue to do!

Most sincerely,

Shannon
