I would like to take a moment to celebrate and honor all staff for their commitment in serving every student every day in Lenox. Every day throughout the school year, each of you, in your own special way, plays a pivotal role in building a child’s confidence, character, and future pathway for success.
Because of your unwavering dedication, Lenox continues to be a place of academic excellence, students are earning national recognition for innovative projects that benefit the greater community, competing in challenging academic activities like Quiz Team and Robotics, and they’re honing leadership skills through ADL Peer Leaders. All of these activities, along with many others, are wonderfully special to our District.
From our secretaries and custodians to teachers and administrators, each day I see your heart for the kids and your heart for doing what it takes to ensure all students succeed. I have observed many of you at sport, theater, music, science events. Your dedication is unprecedented. I often liken our staff to that of a family. A large family, but one with a rare and remarkable culture that we live to our core.
Our dedicated staff members join as One Team with One Mission: To help get every single student across the stage at graduation. This commitment and perseverance is unlike anything I’ve seen anywhere before.
I so very much thank all of you, our supportive families, and our partners in the community, for making the Lenox Public School District an award-winning place for all to learn and grow. My deep appreciation for our staff goes beyond these words into heartwarming gratitude for helping achieve the dreams of our deserving students each and every day…thank you and welcome back.
