The response to the 7/25/2013 post, Getting Ready for Kickoff,” was overwhelming.  Here are just a few of the comments.


I enjoyed the article and would love to see some examples of your letters. Please email them to me.

Please send me a couple of the letters you sent to staff at the beginning of the year.  I look forward to another year working with you.

Your message is greatly received, especially for a first-year principal.  I would love to see some examples of your summer letters to your teachers.  Thank you very much!!

Great advice! Especially for a first-time principal in a newly built school!  Please send me a copy of your letters!

I would most definitely appreciate your examples of summer letters. What an amazing gift from a super star!! 

I am interested in receiving copies of your summer letters. Thanks for your inspiration!

I would love to see your letters if you don’t mind sharing.  You always have awesome ideas.

Please send me copies of your back to school letters. I’m a big fan of LYS and am looking forward to our staff getting to hear Sean speak in August.
