Welcome to the Week of November 15, 2020
Leo Tolstoy wrote, "The two most powerful warriors are patience and time." Though a pandemic continues to occupy our minds, we remain steadfast in patiently greeting each day with optimism and hope and tackling each challenge as it arises.

Even as we continue to uphold all our safety protocols, this week the teachers and students in our in-person classrooms felt a new energy as our cohort groups expanded. Learning from one another and allowing time for our teachers to meet with their Distance Learning students are just a few of the many benefits of this decision.

Henry Ford reminds us, “Coming together is a beginning, staying together is progress, and working together is success.” Thank you for your continued support. The work of educating our children has always been a work we were engaged in together. We will hold true to that spirit of trust and cooperation and will continue to find success.

Even as we face the incredible challenges of this time, we know we also have much to be grateful for. We hope all our families enjoy some much-needed rest over our upcoming Thanksgiving Break.
