It is said that in humility regard others as better than yourselves. I find that during this time in our lives it is becoming easier and easier to judge and judge quickly the faults of others. As we near the end of the first semester of school, I urge you to exercise patience and understanding even when it might not be what needs to be given at the time. One of my favorite things about this season is that the cooler weather provides a sense of hope and happiness. I urge us all that during this season we need to pause and think about what we are thankful for.
We have so many blessings in Prosper ISD. Our students are gifts to us. They bring hope for a new day and future and simply a true joy. As I watch our students learning, performing, or excelling in athletics, I am reminded of how important it is for us to truly celebrate these moments. Our staff also needs to be celebrated as they continue to show up and do their best, always striving for 100% excellence. This expectation is not always easy to achieve, but certainly, is the target each and every day Prosper ISD. Our parents and community continue to show up, support, and rally one another during our darkest moments and in our greatest joy. This is one of the things that I am most thankful for in Prosper ISD.
I encourage and challenge each of you to show humility to others. The world continues to march on and sometimes throw us curveballs. The one thing I believe in and know is that Prosper represents the good in the world. Let’s all commit during this season to regard others as better than ourselves because there is good in each and every one of us, especially in our youth.
We are Prosper! We are one!
