This year’s theme is #RiseAbove! Last year was extremely difficult for us all. As we approach this new school year, we are committed to rising above our obstacles, setbacks, fears and worries. Take a moment to think about your goals for the upcoming school year. Can you reach even higher? Can you Rise Above? Despite our circumstances, despite our differences, and despite all the things that COVID has taken away from us, we must move forward together. Let us move forward with hope, positivity, and by lifting each other up. You know that saying, “we rise by lifting others”? How will you help others Rise Above?
