    The first part of the 2017-2018 school year has gone by quickly, and it has been an exciting time thus far.  Parents have met with their children’s teachers during Open House, parent conferences and workshops. Our school has completed our first quarter and are well into our second. 

    As we reflect on the many things for which we are  thankful, I want to take this opportunity to share just a few of them with you:  We are  thankful for our students who come to school every day ready to learn – their presence reminds us daily, what is important and why we are here.  We are thankful for the continuous support from our parents in creating a healthy partnership for our students.  We are thankful for the teachers, assistants, health aides, bus drivers, secretaries, nurses, lunchroom aides, support staff, therapists and administrators who really care about student achievement and have the best interests of our students at heart.  We are also thankful for our volunteers who enthusiastically contribute so much to our school.

    In these most difficult and challenging times, too, often, we see dedicated and tireless individuals going above and beyond to make sure great things continue to happen in our school. Let me assure you, as the proud Principal at James. S. Rickards High School, your efforts do not go unnoticed. 

    Most importantly, we are thankful for the parents who have kept the confidence, faith, and trust in us.  They continue to share their most valuable possession with us and—in most cases— work hard and advocate to be a partner in their children’s education, safety and well-being. For this, you are greatly appreciated, and we are ever so thankful.

    I would like to wish all of you and your families a happy, healthy and relaxing Thanksgiving holiday!
