Dear Educators,
 
This month, we are focusing on the importance of appreciating each other. There are so many ways to show appreciation and gratitude for each other, and it is important that people of all ages know that they are valued. Let us make sure to show our students and each other kindness, compassion, and gratitude. This simple act can make someone’s day much better than we may realize. You make a difference in the lives of those around you. You are doing amazing things. Thank you for what you do. Reach out to us anytime at education@klrn.org. We are here for you. 
 
With Appreciation,
KLRN Education Team
