200 Strong at the Walk for Wellness!

The count is complete. 200 people showed up for our Wellness Walk yesterday meeting downtown and hoofing it to Knox. The rain held off and people seemed to have a good time.
It was a powerful turnout. You can bet I was nervously watching the skies pour and pour and wondering what the rain would do to dampen the walk. But you all came through like the dedicated professionals you are.
We dropped off nearly as many letters to the School Board and Superintendent. Your positive support of our position MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE! Look for letter writing templates early next week to begin a letter writing campaign in support of our position.
Don't forget the second WORK TO THE CONTRACT DAY, on Wednesday, May 31st. I've heard some great stories about the first day. People giving each other the HONK signal from their cars, people meeting for doughnuts at Centennial, CHS gathering for a 7:30 a.m. photo opportunity, and at least one appreciative principal who came outside so he could walk in with teachers in a show of unity.
TAKE MORE PHOTOS ON THE 31ST!!!! and photos of staff wearing 5/17 buttons. Email them to and he'll put the best on the BLOG!
