#LouisaLEADS: Our Community Comes First
Posted on 10/07/2020

Each October, our team here at Louisa County Public Schools has made it a tradition to adopt a month-long initiative that focuses on spreading kindness and promoting positive relationships. I love this community and I believe it is so special because we work together and have a TEAM mindset! In a world where people seem to be moving further and further apart, all of us here at Louisa County Public Schools must do everything we can to pull together and lift each other up.

Accordingly, I am proud to announce our newest initiative, #LouisaLEADS: Our Community Comes First. Throughout the month of October, our students and staff members will be joining together to honor our First Responders. Through various projects, we will be collaborating together to promote positive relationships throughout this county. By joining together, I know we can boost the morale of this entire community and be an example of hope for people nationwide.

We’ve divided our definition of “First Responders” into four groups, which we will be honoring each week in October. They are:

- Firefighters and EMS workers (honored the week of October 5th)
- Healthcare Professionals (honored the week of October 12th)
Law Enforcement Officers (honored the week of October 19th)
Educators (honored the week of October 26th)

Through our #LouisaLEADS: Our Community Comes First initiative, we will be honoring First Responders of both past and present! These First Responders have done so much for us behind the scenes without ever asking for credit. This month, it will be our privilege to offer them a sincere “Thank You” for their service.

Your child’s school will be releasing more details soon on how you can get involved in this initiative. Additionally, if you or a member of your family is a First Responder, we want to recognize you!  Please visit any of our school websites right now and click on the #LouisaLEADS: Our Community Comes First banner on the home page. There is a simple form to fill out, and once completed, we will send your First Responder a commemorative certificate and several tokens of our appreciation. 

Now more than ever, it is very important that we pull together to promote positive, meaningful relationships. I am excited for this initiative and I hope you’ll join us as we show the world around us that kindness is alive and well here in Louisa County! 

TeamLCPS students and families, THANK YOU  for all of your hard work and continued dedication to our team. You have made this school year a great one thus far and I am so thankful to be your Superintendent. 

Together, we are better, and together, we are TeamLCPS!
