Welcome back to a new school year!
It is that eventful time of the year that brings the excitement, the nerves, the buzz, and all the emotions that come with starting anew. As summer months turn to fall, we find ourselves once again taking the best of what worked last school year while setting out to improve upon the areas that did not go so well. We refamiliarize ourselves with the routines that set ourselves up for success and overcoming the new challenges we will inevitably face.
For 27 years now, Aeries has been a part of this back to school journey with our schools, administrators, educators, students, and parents. While students come back to school eager to view their finalized schedules for the semester ahead, there is so much that has already gone on behind the scenes before that first day of school has begun. It is a time for schools to shine as the vast inter-connected mechanisms of each staff member gets to work on their individual and collective roles. From the trainers leading new or refresher trainings on topics from teacher gradebook to instructional methodology, to the counselors putting finishing touches on student schedules, to teachers creating their lessons plans and syllabi, there is much work that goes into bringing millions of students back to school during this late summer period.
While it has become part of our nature to come through for the parents and students that rely on our public and private schools for their education, we shouldn’t take for granted just how much we accomplish within such a short period of time. Indeed, there is much to proud of already! While we are just getting started on a new school year, be sure to relish your accomplishments and take care of yourself throughout the rest of the school year. Each school year presents a new marathon, requiring resilience and fortitude over the coming months. There are many resources available to look out for yourself and others. We encourage you to focus on your wellbeing, whether it be through apps such as Calm or Headspace. Or perhaps podcasts like “Truth for Teachers” are more up your alley.
As we have mentioned in recent announcements, we are well underway in building out the next generation of the Aeries SIS platform – Aeries NextGen. You can look forward to continual updates to our landing page with the latest updates throughout the school year. We will remain steadfast in our commitment to turning customer feedback into building our product roadmap for both the current and future Aeries SIS products. As we navigate through the new school year ahead, know that you can count on Aeries to help you through it all.
We wish you a successful and rewarding 2022-2023 school year!
