  • 1.   Dear Colleagues, Chicago was last week at the high school and now Fiddler on the Roof at the middle school. What an amazing send off as we head into the days before Thanksgiving break! These two extraordinary student productions highlight how much can happen in the first twelve weeks of school on top of all else that must be done in the same timeframe---Plus, six high school athletic teams qualified for post-season play. How does it all get done? It is certainly with much help from our friends and family within the school community. Congratulations to everyone for a great fall thus far. It’s a good time to take a breather. For all of you who may be hosting for Thanksgiving, I am going with a Butterball this year. Enjoy the break. Happy Thanksgiving!
