My band instructor and CC coach each had a tremendous impact on me during my high school years. They gave me the encouragement and support to reach beyond what I thought I was capable. #StartTheRipple

This week, Eastern Carver County Schools employees were asked to share messages on Twitter using #StartTheRipple to encourage actions in the 2018-19 school year that make a positive impact on students. Messages were shared about plans to make an impact in students lives as well as about people who made an impact in their own lives.

By the time a wave hits the shore, you don’t always know the pebble that started the ripple. Schools have the opportunity to influence students every single day – that is why it is so important that Eastern Carver County Schools staff uses their power for good.
