Born to Fly – 2022-23 School Theme
Monday, March 27, 2023
I am always amazed at the grit of our students. Each day, before I go to my office, I see students playing various sports in the freezing snow outside, practicing music so early so they can fit in all of their other AP and Concurrent Enrollment classes, rehearsing lines in a play, working with a teacher to get extra help on an assignment or prepare for a test, learning to drive a car in these horrible road conditions, and so much more.
I’m positive that I forgot so many things, but my point is that our kids are workers! They go after what they want even when the conditions are not optimal. I just returned from a girls’ lacrosse game tonight. I watched a coach and her team give every girl time to make a goal and they encouraged one another with such positive praise I was blown away. The players even assisted in setting up the field to make it advantageous for that “one player” to score a point even though they could have made the shot themselves. It seriously brought tears to my eyes.
I’m here to tell you that this goes on every single day. Our kids are some of the best out there. I have never seen anything like this. I don’t know what it is in the valley, but it is better in the valley!
Thank you for raising the best and teaching your kids to work hard even when it is not easy. I just love that!
