Last Thursday & Friday I had to opportunity to attend each of high school's graduations. While they were celebrating the culmination of their successes, they also had a start that set them up for future success. Your work & leadership transitions them from home into the school setting and forward from there. So thank you, for your part, with your influence on our graduates.
So often, whatever our last impression is of something overrides what the complete experience actually is. My fantastic vacation to the beach a few years back is slower to come to my memory than the painfully long drive home afterward. The ending of the vacation made me think more than twice about returning the experience. As we end this week, I pass along a final challenge: end the year having fun while learning. For you, staff members and kiddos alike, their desire/excitement to return to school (Explore or in the fall) is directly tied to the fulfillment and satisfaction they experience now. People of all ages return to things they enjoy doing. So... how are you driving the learning in your school to be fun, fulfilling and satisfying? Will you, staff and kiddos leave wanting more?
This week will simply be about pop in visits. If there is a specific need you have of me, please let me know.
Have a fantastically fun last week! I'm looking forward to see you at breakfast at the Tower on Friday morning! (see below- rsvp Stephanie Young if you haven't already)
