Superintendent's Message

  • Dan Goldman

    Dear Key Communicators,

    I am wishing you the very best on this Thanksgiving holiday. May you be with family and friends, may you eat well and smile a lot, and may the Dallas Cowboys lose miserably.

    The “first Thanksgiving,” was neither a feast nor a holiday, but a simple gathering. Following the Mayflower’s arrival at Plymouth Rock on December 11, 1620, the Pilgrims - the first immigrants in what is now the United States - suffered the loss of 46 of their original 102 colonists. With the help of 91 Native Americans, the remaining Pilgrims survived the bitter winter and yielded a bountiful harvest in 1621. In celebration, a traditional harvest festival, lasting three days brought the Pilgrims and Native Americans to unite in a “thanksgiving” observance.

    Topics covered in this edition of the Key Communicator Bulletin:

    • Construction Bond Update
    • Expanded Access to the School-based Health Center
    • Election Impacts on District Programs, Budget, and Community

    Estimados Comunicadores Clave,

    Les deseo lo mejor en este dia festivo de Acción de Gracias. Espero que puedan estar con su familia y amigos, que puedan comer bien y sonreír mucho, y que los Cowboys de Dallas pierdan miserablemente. 

    El "primer Día de Acción de Gracias" no era ni una fiesta ni un día festivo, sino una simple reunión. Después de la llegada de Mayflower a Plymouth Rock el 11 de diciembre de 1620, los peregrinos -los primeros inmigrantes en lo que ahora es Estados Unidos- sufrieron la pérdida de 46 de sus 102 colonos originales. Con la ayuda de 91 nativos americanos, los peregrinos restantes sobrevivieron el invierno amargo y produjeron una cosecha abundante en 1621. En celebración, un festival tradicional de la cosecha, durando tres días trajo a peregrinos y a americanos nativos para unirse en una observación de "acción de gracias."
