The midpoint of the year is almost here! Throughout the last few months, we have had great discussions at the district book study, relevant professional development to strengthen what we do, and powerful conversations at grade, department, and building meetings. Thank you for being forward-thinking and rising above the status quo to provide the best learning opportunities for TVLS students! Soon, we'll be completing midyear diagnostic assessments, departments/teams will be sifting through data, and plans will be made that allows us to continue being an innovative and go-to district. Tusky Valley excels because of the team approach, collaboration, and insight each person brings to the table; what you do matters! George Couros states that just one educator can influence thousands (if not more) of students over a lifetime. Imagine what that number is when we are all working together.
And while many wonderful things are happening in the lives of our students and staff, the work you do everyday is also exhausting. Break is almost here, and I hope you find time to relax, enjoy being with friends and family, and enjoy "you" time! Best wishes to each of you as you celebrate the holidays!
