To all the teachers, administrators, staff and volunteers at the Salem/Keizer School District and other local public and private schools, I'd like to thank you in advance for your service to the community. Have a great year doing what you do best. Education is an important part of our community and we are fortunate to have such dedicated people as role models for our children. My family will do our best to make sure that our children are well rested and prepared when they arrive to your care every morning. Good luck this year and I hope that you are able to reach whatever personal goals you set for yourselves. If anyone else would like to wish our schools well, please post your thoughts in the comment section below.
