Many consider this to be a daunting endeavor. Your education team, however, has clearly embraced this challenge. I want you to know how much we appreciate your leadership and the dedication your team has to providing a high-quality experience for all students. Please share our gratitude with all of those who contributed to this accomplishment.”
