August/September

Welcome Back!

Where did our summer go? The summer days seem to fly by! I hope everyone had a chance to rest, visit, explore, and laugh! Our jobs are unique in that we have a few cherished weeks off to rejuvenate our spirit and hopefully prepare for the task at hand in August. May this school year be our best one yet!

The Porch

"A little bit inside, a little bit outside. Just enough sun with none of the rain. Creaky chairs on old wooden floors. A soft breeze and a cold glass of tea. Easy conversations and the world passing by. That's right: We'll meet you on the porch."
