The holidays are quickly approaching. And a New Year is around the corner. I want to thank all of the staff and the families of our School District. These past years, I have had the privilege to serve as your Chair of the Lee County School Board. It has not been easy, and we still have much to do.

The school year started with a promise to a "NORMAL" year to soon find out that this was not the case. The year was like non-other with more trials and tribulations. Everyone jumping in at a moment's notice to help. And minute-by-minute changes due to COVID updates. The shortage of Teachers, Bus Drivers, and staff to say the least. With the new wave of Tic Tok and Facebook consuming our minds despite all of this, you continue to show up.

The time where we reflect on what we are truly thankful for is now. Thank you to our District Team, teachers, bus drivers, food service workers, and all the staff in our schools. You are our (essential) front-line workers. You keep the focus on our children and make sure they have the tools they need to succeed. Thank you all for making them a priority even though you all had your own families to keep safe and healthy.

I also want to thank our Students and Families for their support through these unprecedented times.

Happy Holidays.
