Since we’re only five days into 2023 –

I hope it’s still fitting to wish you a Happy New Year!

It’s wonderful to have classes resume and have the opportunity to observe learning back in full swing and see so many smiling faces.

(Well… mostly smiling faces, that is.)

Beginning next week – along with other news – I’m going to share with you more details about the progress FSD is making as guided by our new Strategic Plan.

And I’ve got to tell you –

having an eagle as our district’s mascot gives us an excellent model for us to reference every now and then.

Take a minute to be inspired by this eagle as it navigates over a mountain range like no other creature can.

Obviously, eagles have a tremendous ability to soar.

But did you know eagles harness this unique ability to avoid the storms, winds, and rain that hamper other birds?

This isn’t because eagles carry unbrellas and wear raincoats.

Rather, they are able to powerfully and wisely soar above the clouds, well above the turbulence below.

Now I’m not about to claim our new Strategic Plan will allow us to rise above every storm in similar fashion –

But our Strategic Plan WILL HELP us better navigate and reduce the intensity and uncertainty of our storms as well as put us in a better position to take advantage of the opportunities that’ll improve learning and the futures of every FSD student.

I have no doubt our new Strategic Plan will provide us with the steady and supportive wind our FSD Eagles will need to continue soaring and succeeding.

This is why I look forward to sharing more about it with you in the weeks and months ahead!

As always, thanks for all you do!
