Principal Points

As I prepare for the Community Sing, I've been doing a lot of reflecting on what it means to be a community. This winter, we had some of our community impacted by a fire. Many of you didn't personally know these neighbors, but you responded with empathy and generosity. I often say we have the best kids here at Valentine who show empathy, kindness, and generosity in the most beautiful ways. It is evident to me that they are learning this at both home and school, and I am so thankful to be part of a community that honors each other.

May this winter break be full of moments of kindness and generosity for you all.
