• Optimism & Gratitude in Times of Hardship

    We are facing a great many challenges lately, both individually and collectively. We have hazy skies to our west as fires have spread from California to Washington. We have strong storms like Hurricane Sally impacting people in the Southeast. Meanwhile, we are all continuing to be impacted by COVID-19 as the disease continues to proliferate around the United States and here in St. Paul. Through all of this hardship, I remain optimistic and grateful. While we cannot solve all of the world’s problems ourselves, I take comfort in knowing that your work is having a positive impact on the lives of our students and our community each and every day.

  • A First Week Unlike Any Other

    The first week of school feels a little different this year. For me, there's nothing like the exhilaration of a new school year. So many possibilities, so many new opportunities - and so many new faces! This week, we begin a new year in a new way. For most of you, your connections will be through distance learning. Others will resume their commitment to serving children in childcare settings or delivering meals to families throughout our community. No matter your role at SPPS, I want you to know that your work is important and you are valued.
