Dear Friends,

The weather has been a bit gloomy, wet, and now snowy: mirrored in the continuing challenges of our service, but I am always encouraged by the commitment that I see in your faces and your actions each day. Much like the sun shining, filtering, and breaking through the clouds, you do the same as you encourage kids. This week, I’d like to celebrate our teams: every team that’s working together to “do” the work. I truly am appreciative of your ability to see and help others find light every day. Thank you! Here are the latest COVID numbers:

Total Positive cases since August 25th – 617
Total student positive cases – 454
Total employee positive cases –163
Total current active cases – 11
Total recovered cases – 606

Total number of employees and students currently quarantined – 61
Total number of students quarantined since August 25th – 2,633
Total number of employees quarantined since August 25th – 203

Below, I have included a favorite video clip titled, “The Tree” that depicts the ability to encourage and realize change. A familiar Gandhi quote includes the phrase “be the change”. It is used quite often, I believe, because it gives each of us a space to be better.  The concept allows all of us to take ownership, and play a part in providing strength and empowerment to make change happen, to encourage love over hate, to choose light over darkness and provide hope to the discouraged and downtrodden. I have come to the realization, especially over the last couple of years, that it is ALL about love: love for each other, our families, our neighbors, our friends, our students, our colleagues… everyone! Thank you all for the part you’ve played in promoting care, acceptance, kindness and love. We CAN “be the change we wish to see in the world. “

With much respect and love,

Shannon

Be the Change
