I am thankful for so many things! I am thankful that there are these opportunities to express our thanks and gratitude, though we should share our thanks throughout the year too and use these opportunities to amplify our appreciation!
I am thankful that we have a team of educators who live the mission, vision and values at Compass. I am proud that we are continuing to build a school culture where the scholar comes first.
I am thankful that our work is resonating in the greater community. We had our monthly Marketing Tactics meeting earlier today, and were told the brand of Compass is strong across the various digital media platforms. In fact, the 'Top 10 Search Term Trends and Impression Share' has Compass at #1, followed by LAUSD, K 12 Education, Best Online High Schools, ... Our impression share is at 14.6%, followed by k12.com at 10.53%!
I am thankful for our staff on the Staff Advisory Committee, scholars on the Scholar Leadership Council, and parents on the Parent Advisory Council. The ideas and suggestions generated by these groups is amazing, impactful, and powerful. I am thankful for all our staff who are engaged and participating on all of our new committees this year, too, from Energy Bus, to Engagement, to Marketing, to MTSS, to Professional Learning, to Special Events! So many exciting things have been happening at Compass ... because of each and everyone one of you!
I am thankful for my family and friends, who support my crazy life adventure. For being an ear when an ear is needed, a shoulder when a shoulder is needed, and an anchor when an anchor is needed.
THANK YOU, all, again, for being part of this Compass family. I hope you all enjoy time this week with family and friends, and enjoy this season of thanks. Happy Thanksgiving!
