Superintendent Skelly eNews: Gratitude This Thanksgiving

Photo  Superintendent SkellyAs I think about families and friends, I rarely see a clear connection between how fortunate one is to their sense of gratitude.  Some of the most privileged people I know are uncommonly ungrateful.  On the other hand, others who have had setback after misfortune are thankful for each and every small act of kindness or opportunity. What I have been able to connect is a sense of gratitude with overall happiness.  I want to be around folks who are appreciative, and I want to emulate them as well. In our social-emotional health curriculum is the idea of gratitude and thanksgiving.  Perhaps you can support this mindset as you settle down for your Thanksgiving meal. Food for thought! See the Thanksgiving Day issue of the Superintendent eNews from Superintendent Kevin Skelly.
