Good Day Families,
Rare, unusual, odd, erratic, abnormal, and even disturbing may be the start of a few descriptive words to explain the past few months. Exciting, exhausting, rejuvenating, and uplifting are a few of the words to describe the past five days. The staff has worked determinedly to generate plans to sustain a rigorous academic instructional program while teaching in a remote environment. During the past week, educators, parents and students have worked in partnership to establish a promising learning environment. I celebrate everyone’s effort in coming together as a team and working with us.
In the 20-21 school year we re-enter school stronger, more confident and more determined than ever before to deliver an outstanding remote learning education. For now, this is the new standard for learning, but not the one we would choose. What I have learned through this entire period is how much we need to lean on each other, ask for help, and realize that we seldom have all of the answers. I have learned to appreciate the little things in life that at times in the past I may have taken for granted. Gestures like giving a high five, a reassuring smile, a squeeze of acceptance, a giant hug or being able to laugh out loud are the simple gifts that many people provide that bring enormous warmth. What I MOST appreciate about Bill Roberts is how even under circumstances we have never experienced before we are still a learning and caring community that values the small things that really matter.
Please see important information below.
Have a wonderful weekend!
