The ending of any school year merits time spent on review and reflection, but this year more so than any other. But instead of reflecting on the typical end-of-year matters and planning for next year, I choose to pause and express my utmost gratitude for the staff at Carbon Valley Academy with whom I have been so blessed to work. I would be remiss if I did not also acknowledge the tremendous support of our parents, guardians, and grandparents who stepped up to support their students through this trying time. Thank you, we could not have done it without you!
The last two and a half months have been extremely challenging for our students, our families, and our community. The staff at CVA rose immediately to meet those challenges head-on and kept on meeting them until the end. They were rewarded Friday morning with an outpouring of appreciation and love shown by our students and families at a drive-through parade that is indicative of the relationship we have together. The attached pictures and videos here or on our Facebook page tell the story of our success better than a thousand words, and certainly better than any words I might offer.
So I end the 2019-2020 school year with immense pride in this amazing group of teachers, paraprofessionals, and support staff of which I am fortunate to lead. If your experience in other schools these past few months have not been what you would have liked or expected it to be, please know that we would gladly welcome you into ours.
