Dear Warren CUSD 205 Community:
Thank you for your flexibility, cooperation, and dedication to continue the education of our students as we take precautions to keep our community safe. Parents/Guardians have been instrumental in this process, and we need to remain in constant communication as we close out the school year these next few weeks. None of us predicted our school year to end in such fashion, but I am proud of the resilience shown by all the stakeholders of our educational community: students, teachers, parents, administration, Board of Education, and community members. Therefore, once again, thank you for your efforts through this pandemic.
This week, I want to remind all of you that it is Teacher Appreciation Week. We are blessed at Warren CUSD 205 to have such a dedicated team of educators. All of our worlds were flipped upside down suddenly due to COVID-19. Without hesitation, teachers started working around the clock to prepare methods to continue each student’s learning. While building the resources to strategically continue students’ progressions through their school curricula, they were determined to design the teaching to best suit the needs of many diverse students and families who are all battling different circumstances due to COVID-19.
While everyone needs to be thanked for their efforts and victories thus far through this pandemic, I encourage all of you to send a special thank you to our teaching staff. Please make sure they receive the necessary love and encouragement through these unprecedented times. This is uncharted territory for all of us and we need to remain unified to overcome the challenges.
I hope you all stay healthy and well. Please do not hesitate to reach out to us to assist in any way possible.
Dr. Shawn Teske
