Welcome to 2020-21 Thomas Ewing Families!
As we plan for a beginning like no other we have seen in the past, our focus will still be to ensure that:
every child, every day is finding a way to feel connected,
every child, every day is being challenged by new learnings and experiences,
and every child, every day knows they have a champion they can turn to.
Spring of 2020 challenged our staff and students to find a new normal for learning, connected us in new ways and required our champions to champion from afar. What I have most learned through this process is how much I appreciate the expertise our teachers bring to TEJH, the ways in which our students continue to work hard to grow and overall, appreciation for the little things in life - giving a high five, a hug or being able to laugh out loud with many people around. What I MOST appreciate about TEJH is how even under circumstances we have never experienced we are still a learning and caring community.
Normal is such a simple word and it is our goal at TEJH to not only find our new normal, but to use this time as a learning experience that will forever impact the learning environment of TEJH. Our fall may not be “normal,” but our learning will not only continue, but it will thrive. We can’t wait to move on to the next phase of learning under Covid-19 and we know, all returning and new students to TEJH will be welcomed with open arms (from 6 feet away) to our community - we will continue to grow!
Student success is attributed to the partnership and the relationships we build within our community and this is MOST important now more than ever. It truly does take a village and at Thomas Ewing we value teamwork and collaboration! Education is a joint venture and Thomas Ewing greatly appreciates the support you provide for your children at home and at school to help them meet their learning goals.
Thomas Ewing will be focusing on all of the positives that we can take from this experience and as the role models in our students' lives it is important that we display a positive attitude towards learning each and every day. I encourage you to do the same at home.
