Thought for the Day: “[Kids] don't remember what you try to teach them. They remember what you are.”  Jim Henson, It's Not Easy Being Green: And Other Things to Consider

Update on OWL Recognitions – Gratitude:  I had two of our employees respond last week to my request, and we will share pictures and stories on our website and on Twitter.  Here was my request from last week:

     I continue to recognize our employees for Outstanding Wisdom and Leadership/Learning at each monthly school board meeting.  I have shared more than 250 OWLs and notes of appreciation during the past few years.  Gratitude is wonderful to hear, but it also gets an additional benefit by passing it along—paying it forward—extending gratitude.   If you have received an OWL, and you want to extend gratitude, please share it with a colleague that you noticed modeling wisdom, leadership, or learning—or someone you just want to share a word of thanks.  I only ask that you share your story with me via “Let’s Talk.”  I will then send you another owl pin. We can gather these special recognition stories and include them on our website.

We are Social:  check out the pictures and stories on our website, Facebook, and Twitter. We will be adding our stories this year, so if you have something to share, please send me a note, email, “Let’s Talk” or Tweet.

Professional Development Day, January 21, 2019:   Next week is a Professional Development Day in the school district, and I look forward to visiting with our employees and hearing about what you are learning.  I am also looking forward to meeting with you during the next couple of months to share the results of the engagement survey and learn about how we can assist you with your work.
Have a great week,


Jubal C. Yennie, Superintendent
Albany County School District One
