We are two weeks into our 4th Marking Period and starting week 4 of Remote Learning due to the closing of schools as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. While this is not the year that I envisioned as my first at Timber Creek, it has been an amazing experience to go through this with all my colleagues and students here. I am extremely proud of the resiliency and adaptability of each member of our family. They are boldly going into the unknown.
Students we are about to enter our much needed and well-deserved Spring Recess. Make sure that you use the time to get caught up if you need to. Be determined and make a plan to take purposeful action. Understand that your actions or inaction will absolutely make a difference and there will be consequences. Remember that it's not how you start, but how you finish. Do your best to finish strong.
Parents, I am here for you. I appreciate that some of you are still working. I recognize the challenges of having to maintain the household with our students at home every day is no easy feat. But you are all making the best of this situation. Please reach out and ask for any assistance you may need. My staff and I will do our best to assist you. We miss our students and look forward to being with them in school again. Thank you for all that you do.
The TC Family continues to work collaboratively to provide the best educational experience for our students, in spite of the uncertainty of our current situation. Remember to take the necessary precautions to stay healthy and safe. Take some time to disconnect and rest during our Spring Recess. You have earned it! Each new day is an opportunity to be kind, be great, and Charge ON!
