Principal’s Update – January 3

Happy New Year Doss parents and families!

I hope you all had a wonderful time with your family over the break.  Over the past two weeks I got caught up on reading (Leaders Eat Last was one of the best) and got to spend a lot of time with my family.  My oldest, Vail, and I went camping for the first time at Arkansas Bend State Park in Lago Vista.  While it did drop to about 28 degrees at one point, we both had a great time. It was our first time to spend the winter break entirely in Austin so it was a perfect “stay-cation”.

I and our staff are eagerly looking forward to seeing you all on Wednesday, January 8th.  Our teachers will be greeting students at the doors to welcome them back and preparing them for the exciting spring semester ahead.  We have MUCH to look forward to this semester as we close out the year at Lucy Read and begin preparations for the new Doss.  This will certainly be a historic 2020.

I look forward to serving you all throughout this semester!  See you soon.
