What a positive start to our school year! I’m so thankful to see our students coming together around the
region. We had a great turn out of our local schools for CTE Manufacturing Day and the Holocaust
speaker. Seeing our students and the normalcy of Halloween parades, Homecoming celebrations and
sporting events makes me so thankful! The ability to return to in-person training for staff also brings me
I am extremely thankful for all our staff at the EUPISD and in our local districts. Thank you for being a
critical partner in educating our students! As we celebrate this month of thankfulness, I hope each of
you has a wonderful Thanksgiving!
October brings with it all the fall “feels”! Our region is so beautiful this time of the year. Our schools are brimming with activity, whether academic or extracurricular. At all times, our school principals tend to the welfare of their students and staff. October is designated as National Principals’ Month. Take a minute to thank your local principal for their commitment to your school! Thank you, EUP principals!
And just like that, we’re back to school! I’m excited for the start of the 2022-2023 school year. I am so thankful for every school employee who has returned to or joined a school staff to contribute to the success of our students. Regardless of position, every school employee has an incredible opportunity EVERY DAY to positively impact our students in the region. Thank you! Your work is so important, and so very much appreciated!
