Happy New Year!
Happy New Year Duc Families!
As we enter a new calendar year, I am sure we are collectively happy to see the challenges of 2020 behind us so that we can move into a more hopeful year, taking with us the important lessons about resilience, relationships, compassion and strength.
Though our students remain at home for an additional week, Duc d'Anville staff will return to school tomorrow for a week of learning and growth. Over the coming days, we will be engaged as a school team in professional development on a variety of topics. At the heart of our work will be a focus on student achievement, well-being and equity.
Over the past several months, we have had to rethink and revise the way we teach. I have been, and continue to be, inspired by and proud of the dedication of everyone with whom I am privileged to work. From the beginning, they resolutely committed to teaching your children in ways that are so different from what we have all become accustomed. Through their creativity and passion the success of your children have remained their top priority and focus.
Here's wishing our students another week of fun and rest! We look forward to welcoming them back on January 11th.
Rachael and the Duc staff
