To the editor:
Christmas season continues, it seems appropriate to take a minute
from the hustle and bustle of all of the high school activities that
are taking place to think about the many things here in the Lincoln
Community High School District for which we are grateful.
The entire staff and administration are grateful to the
parents/guardians for supporting their students, because education
is not, nor has it ever been, a one-person job. Students who come to
school ready to learn are sent that way from home. In this world,
when parents/guardians are sometimes raising students alone, working
multiple jobs, or building a career, this can be difficult to do.
We would be remiss if we didnít express our thanks and gratitude to
our entire teaching staff. In addition to teaching every student,
every school day, staff members spend time outside of the school day
planning lessons, grading papers, sponsoring an extra-curricular
event or an enrichment activity. They serve not only as educators,
but often times as mentors or role models. Teachers often times help
students make connections between services they may not know are
available, one of the many tasks they do that isnít in their job
[to top of second column in this letter]
LCHS support services also deserve our gratitude
this holiday season. These are the hard working individuals who make
sure everything runs smoothly. These are the magicians who get it
done, behind the scenes.
And finally, how could we not give a very sincere
thank you to the communities which support our school district. From
buying advertisements, dinner tickets, or just donating time or
expertise when needed, our communities always step forward to
support our students by supporting Railer Nation.
We often take for granted the efforts put forth to support education
at Lincoln Community High School. And, when we do stop to think
about what that means, we are all thinking toward the future we are
building for our next generation. Please take time and be grateful
for the communities we live in, work in, and continue to believe in
the future of Railer Nation. Our future is our most valuable
resource, so take the time this Christmas season to remember it.
Lincoln Community High School District 404
