Randolph Learning Community,
This Thanksgiving, I am grateful for our staff, families, and community stakeholders whose unwavering support is the foundation of our school system. Thank you for continuing to stand with us and believe in our mission. Your contributions and involvement ensure the success of every child. We have had so much to celebrate this school year districtwide. I have included a few highlights from the fall below, but these examples cannot fully encapsulate all of the accolades and achievements our phenomenal district continues to achieve. The full spectrum of opportunities we provide supports each child individually, and our greatest strength in Randolph is our ability to offer a holistic education. The inclusive approaches we take are why we continue to be a nationally ranked school system.
Every school districtwide continues to excel. Some of the articles below highlight specific examples about the strong performance of our school community. While important, the social, emotional, and mental health resources we provide to our students are always our most important priorities. Throughout the year in our buildings and classrooms, we create lessons which facilitate opportunities to foster healthy relationships which are essential for maintaining positive learning environments. Our staff go above and beyond, and the success of the district is a direct reflection of the investment of time our staff devote to student achievement and individual growth.
Throughout history, society has experienced challenging times. I know that recent events over the past few months have been very difficult for many people across the country and around the world. My thoughts continue to be with anyone in our community who may be struggling, and I hope you will take this brief time off for Thanksgiving break to focus on self-care which is always important.
As we take this break, I hope you and your loved ones will take the time to set everything aside and focus on what’s most important to you. Prioritize your wellness and remember that it is a priority. This extended weekend is a great time for our students, staff, and families to focus solely on ways to relax, rejuvenate and decompress. In whatever ways you choose to celebrate, I hope that it brings you joy.
As the month of November closes, we look ahead to December. The 2023 - 2024 school year is off to a fantastic start, and I look forward to what 2024 will bring as it approaches right around the corner.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
Jennifer Fano, Superintendent of Schools
