No matter the age of the students you work with, you’ve had conversations this week about the gifts each of us is giving or receiving for Christmas. It’s a fairly traditional holiday discussion, and guaranteed to get you into any conversation throughout December. As a final “Good Things” for this calendar year, I want to remind you all of the invaluable gifts that you give our students every single day. … Knowledge. 

Knowledge can mean many things … one definition says: “Knowledge” is “information, understanding, or skill that you get from experience or education.” I hope that you go home today - undoubtedly exhausted - with a feeling of satisfaction and peace in your heart for the many, many days and long hours of gift-giving that you provide to our students. The knowledge, experiences, support, services, and love that you show our students are truly the most difficult gifts to provide to a child. They are the most difficult to give, and yet the most important for them to receive. Whether you give to our kids through your professional skills as you teach, coach, encourage, feed, support through logistics or organizational efforts, protect, counsel, drive a school bus, clean a classroom, manage student files and information, or even support through the services and assistance you provide to educators for our students - you are GIVING THE GIFT OF KNOWLEDGE to our children directly or indirectly because of your role at this school district. 

Thank you for all that you do for the HSSD and for our kids. Thank you for being part of our Trojan Family. Thank you for choosing to give and serve all year long, because that’s what education is all about. Don’t ever doubt that all that you give and do as a professional in this district is deeply appreciated by me and all of your administrators and most importantly - by our students and families. 

Have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! Go take care of you and yours, and get some good rest.
