Renew – A Message from Dr. McGown
Dear Klein Family,
Today marks the beginning of the second semester in Klein ISD! This new semester of the new year brings the opportunity to reflect and to renew our commitment to ourselves, to our families, to our Klein community, and, most importantly, to our students.
Students like Zuri, a graduating senior at Klein Cain High School and Klein ISD EMERGE Fellow who just received her acceptance and full-ride to Dartmouth University. Students like our resourceful HOSA members across the district who saw a need in our community and met it by donating nearly 500 COVID survival kits to the homeless. And students like the 34 graduates from Vistas High School and the Klein Success Academy who recently completed their educational journey.
We knew that 2021 would not automatically remedy the hardships of the past year, and although the challenges continue, these brave, bright students steadfastly renew our hope in our classrooms across Klein ISD for our beloved Klein Community and for our great Nation.
Quite simply, these young people remind us to look up! We’ve spent so much time keeping our heads down and taking care of the immediate challenges that are right in front of us that we haven’t had a chance to do much else. Now, let us look up and let us look ahead to the new opportunities that are waiting to be added to our long tradition of excellence and innovation in Klein ISD. And while it is important that we reflect and learn from the difficult lessons of the past year, more importantly, let’s focus on looking up with a renewed sense of optimism for the possibilities to come.
My hope for you in 2021 and in this new semester is that we all find peace and take time to share more encouragement, understanding, and laughter with those around us.
Dr. Jenny McGown
