Dear Mandel School faculty and staff,
I want to take a moment to thank you for your resilience and capabilities during this very special semester. It has been a challenging year, to say the least, and your successes deserve to be celebrated.
I know how hard you’ve all been working, while also adapting to new lifestyles with which you may have limited experience—schooling your children at home, caring for family members, managing the pandemic, transitioning to remote learning/teaching/working, rolling out a new curriculum, enduring the election—but we all worked together to ensure our students had an excellent educational experience this term. The Mandel School has done very well because of your hard work and dedication.
I am so grateful for your support and I wish you rest and rejuvenation during the holidays.
