"Celebrating Today, Preparing for Tomorrow"
This week has been deemed Education Week in Saskatchewan, providing an opportunity for the NESD Board of Education to formally celebrate the success of our teachers and staff and our students. This is a time of renewal for the Board of Education, and it is especially important during a time of change to recognize and celebrate success. This recognition provides a touchstone to mark the place from where we have come, as well as a cornerstone to what we might build in the future.
We will use the successes you have realized to build our strategic plan going forward and to measure the progress we intend to see in the future. We will begin with the student first by recognizing that our students' success is rooted in the success of the teachers and staff who work within this school division, buffered and supported by the layers of community within which you work and serve.
This week and every week, the Board of Education celebrates the teachers and staff of this school division who we know are working with professional diligence and caring intention in the education and continued success of our students, both inside and outside of the classroom. We also celebrate the success of the partnerships forged by our schools with their communities. Together we have much to celebrate, even as we prepare for tomorrow.
