Dear Skyline Families,
Lech Walesa, one stated, “The thing that lies at the foundation of positive change, the way I see it, is service to a fellow human being.”
I share this message as a reflection of who I am as a person and a leader and what I fundamentally believe the Skyline Learning community can be for its students and families. Each of us has experienced dynamic changes over the last several months. We have quarantined from colleagues, friends, and family. We have hurdled the uniqueness of delivering non-traditional educational services to our students. We have witnessed and/or experienced social struggles. We are preparing for and moving through a shift in leadership here at Skyline.
Each of these life changing experiences impacts the foundation of who we are as human beings and how we interact with and respond to each other. I am a firm believer that while change is inevitable, that change should not define us. Rather, our response to change and challenge is what defines us. As we prepare to move into the 2020-2021 school year, albeit with some present moment of uncertainty, my hope is to model grace, understanding, flexibility and support as the pinnacle manner in which we maneuver through the challenges of opening school for our students and establish growth oriented policies, practices and systems. I ask that each of you consider the same as we strive to enhance the services that Skyline offers to all of our children and their families.
I look forward to meeting you, hopefully in person, and serving with you.
