First Week Full of Promise

First Week Full of Promise

What a great start to a year filled with promise!  As Jenny and I visited every campus over the first three days, it was wonderful to see our students and staff actively engaged together.  One of the things we noticed was the clear work to ensure that EVERY student is known by name, strength, and need (so many circles!).  These intentional moments will go a long way in making this the best school year ever!

A couple of times during our visits, we ran into pre-K students coming in.  You can imagine the variety of emotions expressed by these young learners. For every four year-old hopping up and down (literally!), there was another one crying very real tears, not sure what to do in this huge place without Mom, and still another one proudly proclaiming to anyone passing by, “Look at my new shoes!”  It was a joy to watch our pre-K educators (and office staff and volunteers) calmly take the hand of a crying child, gently redirect the hopping child, quickly admire the Batman shoes, and then say, “We’re a train, heading down the tracks. Who’s on board?” And slowly, not necessarily in a straight line, and not without the occasional sniffle or giggle, the whole crew moved into the classroom.

That pre-K line is a great symbol for us in Klein ISD.  As we collectively model an insatiable desire to learn and improve by catalyzing innovation and embracing failing forward, there will be hop-up-and-down moments, real challenges, lots of joy, and occasional tears (and sometimes, new shoes!).  And through it all, we remember that we are doing this work to ensure EVERY student exits with a purpose, and that our awesome fellow Klein Family Train passengers are in this work with us!   

Thank you for a great first week!
