• Newsletter April 2021


    I attended the national school board convention a few years ago in Denver, and there were a lot of great presenters there. I want to share some quotes from Dr. Stephen Sroka as we consider moving forward during a tough time. Dr. Sroka has quite a story. Even though he is now a medical doctor, he was a troubled child who suffered from both ADHD and dyslexia. His teachers didn’t give him much hope because of his rambunctious behavior. If that wasn’t bad enough, he had a stuttering problem and had one crossed eye. One teacher believed in him and encouraged him to battle through his stumbling blocks and make something of himself. Well, he obviously did and became a doctor. Here are some of his thought-provoking quotes:


                “You have the power of one to start a fire, but you need the power of many to keep the fire burning.”


                “Those who are judgmental have not been humbled.”


                “You don’t get a second chance to make a first impression.”


                “Depression screening is more effective than a bullying program.”

                “Hurt people hurt people. We need to help people help people.”


                “When “I” is replaced by “We,” Illness becomes Wellness.”


                “If you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will go its whole life thinking it is stupid.”


                “There is no App like a Lap; read to a child.”


    Hopefully, the pandemic is soon to be in our rear view mirror. A lot has happened in our country, and we have all had our own individual experiences with it the past year. We continue to have success each day because of EVERYONE in our schools and in our community. None of it happens without working together. When we put other people first, we find ourselves leading the pack. Our schools are leading the state in a lot of areas because of the teamwork that has been exercised throughout the year. I congratulate you all for hanging in there and facing the challenges head on as we have victoriously surged through the school year. We are not finished yet, but I am confident that we will make it and that we will be more than pleased with our accomplishments on the final day.
