Dress for Success
Does the high school principal ~ who also happens to be my boss ~ count? Herewith, please find a schoolwide e-mail that popped up in all our in boxes Wednesday afternoon, the day after Back-to-School Night.*
I wanted to thank you all for a wonderful evening last night. As I stood by the Main Office at the end of the night, many parents stopped to thank me for providing them a great opportunity to learn more about the school in general, establish connections to you all while learning everything about your classes, and just feel like they are full partners in their student’s education. I did not receive one negative comment last night or today about our BTSN activities. That says a lot about your organization and presentations, positive outlooks toward learning and education, caring attitudes about their children, knowledge about your content, your overall professionalism, and the list goes on.
Many of you dressed up and looked really good and professional. I would consider doing that more often and not just special evenings. Of course, Fridays are our spirit days, but the other days—feel free to dress up. It changes the mood of the school and your individual classrooms!
Last night was just another example of why this is a great school to learn and work at! Thank you for all you did to make it a successfully positive evening for our parents and your peers!
Have a great afternoon.
