Have a GREAT 3-Day Weekend with Your Family!

Big picture
We have survived four weeks of new planning strategies, new teaching strategies, new learning strategies and possibly a sort of grieving for our lost normalcy. And we did this with no warning and no guidebook!! You all pulled off a great feat - completely changing the way we provide instruction and meals to our students all in one week. That can take a toll on the most healthy person......I encourage you to 'unplug' and leave work behind for a few days.


Stay safe and stay healthy!

Let's Be Like GEESE

Dr. Albert Schweitzer often told the story of a flock of wild geese that had settled to rest on a pond. One of the flock was captured by a gardener who clipped its wings before releasing it. When the geese started to resume their flight, the bird with the clipped wings tried frantically, but vainly, to lift itself into the air. The others, observing his struggles, flew about honking in an obvious effort to encourage him. All of their effort was to no avail. When it was obvious that the one goose was not going to successfully rejoin the group, the entire flock settled back on the pond and waited, even though the urge to go on was strong within them. For several days they waited until the damaged wing feathers of the goose had grown sufficiently to permit it to fly. Only then did the entire flock rise together to resume their long flight!
