BEE in the Know

Welcome Back

Student working on the computer.Dear Staff,

I hope you all had a fantastic fall break!

We've all had that favorite teacher growing up; the one who went above and beyond to make our school year special. I can't thank you all enough for your dedication as you tirelessly work to virtually educate our Pendergast students.

Teaching can be incredibly challenging work, yet we can and do change lives everyday. One of the things I miss the most is going out to visit classrooms throughout the district and seeing how you are inspiring generations of students to think, learn, create and accomplish things they never believed they could do.

According to a Japanese proverb, "Better than a thousand days of diligent study is one day with a great teacher." There's such truth in these words and I am honored to work alongside the talented staff we have in the Pendergast Elementary School District. You are truly AMAZING!

I BEE-lieve in you!
