We've reached the last weekend of the school year. These are the most hectic and exciting days of the year. In the past few days I've attended several fine arts performances and honors programs. The coming week includes several more honors programs, two baccalaureate services and three graduation exercises. I don't mind one bit. Our work as educators culminates in these events. Please attend as many as you can in support of your students.
On a different topic, by now you probably know that a teacher was arrested earlier this week on charges of inappropriate conduct with a student. The charges will be vetted in due course. But, I will say this - the good in our system and our staff far outweighs any negative that might be out there. We have to keep in mind that our actions, even as individuals, impact people's perception of our school system and community. In that regard we are all keepers of the reputation of GSCS. We have a lot in which to take and show pride. Just attend one or two of the honors programs or graduations mentioned above. The coming week should renew our spirits about the work we do. I believe in what we are doing together. Continue to be agents of change where you are.
Have a great week and wonderful last few days of the school year.
