Thank you for everything that you do each and every day on behalf of our students, our families, our district, and our union. You have the most important job in the world--and often the most demanding. Every day you come to school and something amazing happens--that "aha" moment when your student "gets it"; that day you finally break through to the child who has been resistant; that minute that your kiddo gives you a hug and says "I'm glad to be here!"
You probably don't hear it often enough, but I know that so many people out there think it: Thank you! Thank you for what you do. Thank you for what you give up to do what you do. Thank you for caring about children. Thank you for caring about education.
Enjoy your well deserved holiday break. Safe travels to those of you who will be on the road. Enjoy your family and friends. Happy Thanksgiving!
Congratulations to those folks who were able to take advantage of the Retirement Incentive offered this fall. I wish every one of you the best as you move into the next chapter of life--whatever that may be! I know that HSD is losing very talented and dedicated educators. On behalf of the HEA, I want to thank you for your years of service to our students, our school district, and our union. You will be missed!
HEA and HSD has been working on a new transfer form (thank you Kelly Elder!) which will be available online soon. We anticipate that there may be quite a bit of movement, so make sure that you start thinking about where you would like to be next year. If you are even considering a possible move, or have a dream job in mind, make sure that you put in for a transfer, even if that particular position is not currently open--you never know, it just may open up. As soon as the transfer form is live, I will let you know by email.
