In the midst of difficulty lies opportunity. - Albert Einstein
We know that 2020 has been a difficult year, but we are very proud of how GCS employees have handled unprecedented changes gracefully and have shown their resilience, unbelievable flexibility, and understanding throughout the past months. While the shutdown created many challenges, it also united us in many ways.
During American Education Week, we are encouraging GCS employees to share words of gratitude with their peers by writing personal messages on #GCSStrong postcards to let them know they are appreciated. We are asking schools and staff to use the hashtag #GCSStrong on their social media and in communications with families. We will also post stories on the GCS social media and website to honor individuals across the district.
This week, we are celebrating the 10,000-plus GCS staff members who, despite the challenges, are keeping students engaged, responding to social-emotional needs, feeding the children, developing and improving their own and their students’ technical skills, transporting them to clean, safe school buildings, connecting families to schools virtually, and developing out-of-the-box solutions to whatever unique circumstances they face.
Thank you for everything you do to ensure the safety, health, and wellbeing of each and every student.
Each day this week will are honoring different groups of employees to celebrate their unique contributions.
