Each school sat together donning their school apparel. Our new Superintendent, Dr. RJ Webber, filled the room with excitement, inspiration, and gratitude. Dr. Webber recognized those staff members who have worked for more than 20 years and beyond. And then there's our high school band director who has been teaching for 49 years!
The Northville Educational Foundation shared some exciting updates to their Innovative Grants Program, Staff Giving, and Thank a Staff Campaign, which will be shared publicly soon.
The highlight of the event was when a group of our students took the stage to conduct a gratitude circle, where they shared what they are grateful for here at NPS. A perfect pull at the heart strings! Moments of laughter and tears. This is our WHY! They are our why!
After an inspiring Welcome Back session, it ended on a high note with the band playing the school fight song. We're ready to make 2022-23 school year the best year yet! We're ready for you students! Let's make it a great year!
