As we look ahead to the Thanksgiving holiday next week, I want to thank each and every one of you for the strength, patience and determination you continue to show throughout this challenging year. I’m tremendously thankful to be a part of Team DPS, where our students lead the way in caring for their communities, as the students in this heartwarming video demonstrate. Vista Academy culinary program students have been hard at work preparing meals for the “Community Equity Educational Dinner” — a program made possible by the City and County of Denver’s Healthy Food for Denver’s Kids grant. I could not be prouder to see that spirit of gratitude and community service shining through in our scholars, and I hope you’ll be inspired by it as well. With a thankful heart, I wish you and your loved ones a safe and restful holiday break.
