Thanksgiving is a special seasonal reminder to pause and reflect with a spirit of gratitude.
I am grateful for the West Linn-Wilsonville school community and the opportunity to work alongside a highly talented group of professionals who commit to doing what is best for our students, every single day. I am grateful to our parents and patrons for the countless ways in which you volunteer, contribute, and support the many successes of our students, staff, and school communities. I am grateful to those who go above and beyond, including our incredible PTAs, booster clubs, MAP volunteers and Education Foundation board members. I am grateful for a School Board made up of volunteer community members who lead with integrity, compassion, and a never-ending belief in our students and staff. Most of all I am grateful for our students, who never cease to amaze us with their endless talent, work ethic, empathy, and desire to be the best people they can be to one another…and the world.
Enjoy the colors of fall, the crisp fresh air, the beauty of our landscape, and these days ahead. I wish all of you a joy-filled Thanksgiving holiday with family, friends, and neighbors.
