Dear Parents, June 7, 2021 Next week we will be closing what has been one of the most unique school years in my career and probably the same for you as parents and for our students. I am thankful we could spend the vast majority of this school year together even with all of the COVID restrictions and protocols. When we face challenges and we reflect on the school year, we can focus on what was negative or focus on what was positive. We can celebrate what we were able to do this year instead of dwelling about what we weren’t able to do. Although the sense of loss is real, I wanted to share some of the great things we accomplished and that I am proud of.
Here are some highlights that come to mind:
● We were able to offer in-person learning throughout the school year.
● We were able to offer KHOLA (Kenowa Hills Online Learning Academy) to families who wanted a virtual learning option.
● Our staff exhibited amazing flexibility and perseverance as they faced periods of isolation and quarantining, and struggles involved with contact tracing.
● Our parents demonstrated patience and understanding and worked hard to support their children at home.
May 21, 2021 There is nothing more rewarding than seeing your child achieve their goals – big and small! Whether it’s celebrating those first steps or graduation day, witnessing achievements gained by hard work are some of a families’ proudest moments. Hard work and determination are the ingredients of perseverance. By helping your children develop perseverance now, you can prepare them to learn from their future failures and work hard to achieve future successes. As we close out the school year, look for opportunities to teach and model the power of perseverance!
