It is a tremendous pleasure to declare May 4-8 Staff Appreciation Week across the Greater Essex County District School Board. We have 4,500 employees pulling together, as a team, for a common goal and I think we should acknowledge each other together.
It is no coincidence that we have scheduled this celebration during Education Week in Ontario. Our work, everyone's job, has a central purpose - the success and well-being of our students. It's an honourable mission and a huge responsibility and we do it well! All of you deserve to know that, not just administration appreciates your conscientious effort, but your colleagues admire you for your contribution to our objective.
It is my hope that this sentiment is expressed each day of every year, but this special observance of Staff Appreication Week gives us a chance to provide some focus to our daily dedication and determination.
