Dear Weld Re-8 Community,
October brings the first hint of winter to the Colorado landscape. After the moisture we have received over the past two weeks, I am hopeful that we will continue to experience mild temperatures to allow Haselden Construction the opportunity to continue the builds at Little Trappers Preschool and Kenneth Homyak PK-8 School. Construction continues to progress and is most visible at these two sites. The High School is wrapping up Phase Two this fall with the remodel work occurring in the existing woodshop area. It is being converted into a State of the Art Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics area. The Preschool Building will be open for our kids in January of 2018. The next phase of the build will move to Twombly Elementary in January with Phase Three at the High School and Butler Elementary beginning in May of 2018. All projects will be completed and ready for our students to enter into for the school year 2018-2019. Thank you to the Weld Re-8 voters for their support and trust to provide our community with safe, secure and top-quality learning environments for our students. I can speak for each of our employees when I say, THANK YOU!
As an educational organization, we are committed to insuring each of our children have the very best educational opportunity. Our theme for the school year is HOPE, and I believe it is the one characteristic that we, as human beings, desperately need to survive. HOPE is defined as “a feeling of expectation and desire for a certain thing to happen.” We are spending time in staff collaboration honing our skills as an organization around literacy. Literacy is the ability to read and write. We have the desire that every student in Weld Re-8 School District is able to read and write at grade level in order to compete in a global society. Our children are an amazing resource and gift for us. Each deserves the very best educational opportunity, and I can promise each of you that is the passion that drives us as a staff.
I recently spoke about perseverance to our employees and want to spend the last part of this communication with you explaining the importance of perseverance or GRIT. This was a topic discussed about the ability of students to persevere through tough lessons and learnings. I have to admit, it was a clear lesson to me in this area. How often do our students give up without accomplishing the learning target? Have we taught them to “persevere” through the problem to reach a successful solution? Do we provide the HOPE each need to experience the GRIT involved in any successful undertaking? Have you spent time in reflection about your ability to work through a problem and personal GRIT? To illustrate, I am enclosing a video from a TED Talk on ‘Grit.”
