We Are Thankful!


Dear Choice Family,

We have so much to be thankful for this year, and it all begins with YOU!

​​As teachers, staff and administrators, we are steadfast in our commitment to ensuring everyone thrives in our communities. You share your talent and passion with the children you serve every single day and it does not go unnoticed. Thank you for all you have done — and continue to do — to transform the lives of students in ways big and small.

You may have noticed on your school’s Facebook page the #WeAreThankful campaign. Below you will find a handful of wonderful comments your school community shared. I read them all and was overwhelmed with joy and pride. If I could give you all a high five, I would. Thank you for being you!

We hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

From our family to yours,
Sarah Wildey
Chief Executive Officer
