Greetings ASCA Region 8 Members,
I hope you have had a great start to your school year. Our theme for this year is “You are Enough” as we continue to focus on self-care and a sense of belonging. We want you to know that we, the Executive Board, know that you are more than enough for the positions you hold and plan to hold in the future. You are the right person chosen at this moment to stand in the gap to advocate for all students, regardless of their socio-economic status, race, gender, disability or any other group that has been created to identify sub-groups. We believe that every child can succeed when they have the right adults in their corner guiding and supporting them. We also believe that “You are Enough” to lead your districts, departments, schools and communities to the next level of excellence.
I want to wish you a powerful and productive year as you continue to serve your communities. Please note that we, Region 8, are here for you and for each other. We ask that you remember to reflect this year whenever your back is against the wall, when you are being challenged or even questioning your own abilities that “You are Enough”.
Have a great year on purpose.
