As I reflect on the growth of our district since my journey began at Otselic Valley eight school years ago, one constant has remained unwavering: those fortunate enough to serve students, staff, parents, and community members in our beauty-filled corner of Northern Chenango County are embraced and adopted into the Otselic Valley Family.
I am thankful and grateful to serve in a school district and community that aspires to empower all students to realize their unlimited potential. We are a district and community that takes the long view in preparing and planning for the future. We are a district whose members respect the dignity of every person. We are a district of deep commitment to students, and pride in what we're building together.
During this season of thanksgiving, let us encourage one another, and together express our gratitude for our loved ones and all those placed in our lives. We have many reasons to be grateful.
