Words from the Prez, November 2011

Post date: Nov 10, 2011 8:40:15 PM

The word of the month for Thanksgiving is gratitude which according to the Merriam Webster dictionary gratitude means “the state of being grateful, thankfulness”. There are many things in my life for which I am thankful, my health, my family, my friends, my dog and the freedom that many Americans continue to fight for us to keep. I am also thankful to work with great educators who work hard to ensure that our students are learning and to work in a school district that will listen and take into consideration our opinions and suggestions.

It is very easy at this time of year to let stress take over, and forget the many things in our life that bring us to “the state of thankfulness”. My goal this holiday season is to take a deep breath and remember the many things in my life for which I am thankful. I hope this holiday season that you can take time to reflect and remember everything that brings thanks or the feeling of gratitude in your life.
