Hello Ravenna Staff,

As my communication to the staff was sent on Tuesday regarding the closing of Tappan Elementary School, I could not help but think how this is another subtle reminder that changes and moving forward is inevitable.  Regardless of whose name or face is attached, time marches on.

This also serves as a personal reminder for me that as these various situations and continuous changes occur, it is always better to communicate openly, stay together and focused on the big picture, fight for children and in the end, do the “right thing”. 

I hope that everyone has a restful or productive weekend!

Hello Ravenna Staff:                                                                                                      

As we gear up for the last five days before winter break, I would encourage all of us to finish strong and stay focused on our mission of educating all children, but to also allow our children (and our own childish spirit) to celebrate and embrace the season.  Good luck with all of your last minute “holiday chores” and I look forward to seeing all of you at some point next week!
