Subject: Thank You

Hello Mrs. Stride-Goudie,

 I’d like to thank you for all that you have done for our school so far this year.  There has been nothing but a positive atmosphere in the school.  For the most part the students have been keeping out of trouble, which is great to see.  I also wanted to thank you for how you’ve impacted me as an individual.  The one day that we had our chat really changed my actions at school and out of school.  Also, the opportunities that you give me to help benefit our school is a key factor because I feel that us grade 9’s should be more role models to the younger grades.  Thanks for all that you have done in 2011 and I’m very excited to come back in 2012.

 Merry Christmas to you and your family

Staff Thoughts

“I meant to find you both before Spring Break started, but it was a pretty busy week!  I just wanted to say “thank you”, you are both doing an unbelievable job and I truly appreciate everything that you do, not only for our school, but for me as well!   Have a great break!”   (Specialist Teacher)

“Karen and Travis, I didn’t verbalize my thoughts at today’s meeting, but I very much appreciate both of you! You truly are leaders… You’ve created an atmosphere where every staff member feels valued and you welcome input/feedback.  You’re decisive, positive, organized and communication is excellent! The messages our students are hearing is that you care about them and that you will celebrate their every success.  I could go on… Thank you”
( Middle Years Teacher)
