Posted Date: 10/24/2016

Dear Staff:

October 24-28, 2016, will mark the observance of Education Support Personnel Week—a time for saluting our public school education support professionals (ESPs) and the contributions they make to education. The interaction between children, parents, and ESPs is vital to the continued success of public education. Their work is something to celebrate.

Today's ESPs do more than provide nutritious meals, maintaining our facilities, technology, supporting instruction, and transport our children to and from school; they also serve as positive role models. As I am out in the district It is very apparent the quality of the work our support team provides every day to move this district forward. My hope is that all of you know how much you are appreciated.

Parents, community members, teachers and administrators I encourage you to acknowledge and show appreciation to our ESPs for their service as essential and equal education partners. A simple 'thank you' or card for these hard working professionals would be welcomed and greatly appreciated.

As a district and a community we depend upon and trust our support staff to serve and protect our students, and they do so willingly and with integrity. Let's make time together to celebrate all of their hard work to serve our district.

Together Everyone Achieves More,

Mike Garde
