Welcome Back Gift


Dear TYWLS Student,

Welcome Back! We are truly excited for you to return to school. We also recognize that this year will be different in so many ways. Who would have thought that we would all be wearing masks, that we wouldn’t attend school in person every day and that our classrooms would be set up to ensure socially distanced learning? We are definitely living in unprecedented times. Yet there is one thing we know for sure – a TYWLS student is someone who is grounded in strength, determination and leadership. If anyone can weather the storms of uncertainty that are raging around us…it’s YOU!

We at Student Leadership Network have been working with your principals all summer to help ensure that this school year, despite its challenges, will be a positive and productive experience for all of you. Please know that everything we do is done with the best of intentions and with YOU at the forefront. Our goals this year are to:
  • Deepen our connections with all five TYWLS schools and provide clarity around the role of Student Leadership Network and how we impact your experience as a TYWLS student.
  • Listen and respond to the needs of our students, principals and teachers via roundtable conversations and focus groups.
  • Reimagine and redesign our programs so that they are culturally relevant and responsive, inclusive and representative of a diverse set of needs and interests.
We come to work every day because we believe in YOU and therefore our work must represent what YOU need and want. So be prepared to share your thoughts with us, use your voice and exercise your amazing leadership skills. We are all in this together!

As a token of our appreciation for you, how much we value you and all you bring to TYWLS, please choose one welcome back gift from the two selections below.
Please complete this form to let us know your selection. Whether you’re on a blended or fully remote schedule, your school will ensure that you receive your gift.

See you soon and welcome back to school…Go TYWLS!!
