The 2017-2018 School year was not an easy one for Florida schools. The following words were shared with me recently at a meeting with some of our parents...We adapt, We overcome, and We improvise. Those words really stuck with me and really describes what we do as school volunteer managers, business partner coordinators and family engagement specialists.
One thing you learn in public schools is adjust to whatever situation being faced and that adapting requires an agile mindset.
Within our schools, we are constantly presented with situations that test our ability to prevail in adverse situations. Resilience is the word used when describing the degree of fortitude people are able to show in the face adversity.
The ability to solve problems in the face of unprecedented situation is a quality, which I believe, is of immense value in our schools and I commend all of you!
FAPE would like to thank each one of you for the amazing job you perform in your schools. We look forward to growing our partnership, our membership and supporting the needs of all of our members.
For the 2018-2019 School Year, we will focus on statewide support with state and national partnerships for all school districts.
Have a wonderful summer!
