Winter Break

Dec 21, 2018

As we begin the winter break and the holiday season, I am hopeful that you have wonderful plans with your family and friends to celebrate.  These two weeks represent a break from the normal day-to-day events and provide a chance for us all to reflect on what has been going well and what we want to help make better in the coming year.

2018 may have brought some unique challenges to each of us.  I feel these challenges are what makes us stronger as we remember them and persevere toward greater things.  2019 has the potential to be an amazing year.  What positive influence will you bring to 2019?  How do you want your new year to unfold?

My hope is for strengthening the positive and productive learning environment for our students.  After all is said and done, our students are the reason we are here.  

I wish you all a blessed holiday season.  I hope that you will have a safe and restful holiday season.

Always remember: The greatest gift you can ever receive is not found in the shops or under your Christmas tree.  It is found in the hearts of your loving family and true friends.

If you have any questions or comments, feel free to email me at askthesuperintendent@joliet86.org or use the Let's Talk feature on the district website.
