We Are Connected
How Can you create a We are Connected mindset culture at home?
We all have belief systems that help define who we are. But this can go wrong when we separate ourselves from others because of these beliefs. Some individuals create walls of anger and even hatred to isolate themselves from large segments of people who could actually help and benefit them. We must instill values and a strong sense of self in our children, but also cultivate curiosity and open-mindedness towards all people, regardless of differences in beliefs. We are connected means working with others to dream bigger!

Blessings in a Backpack
We are collecting canned soups for families in need whose children receive food each week in a backpack through the Blessings in a Backpack Program. This program was started and is managed by students at Lambert High School who wanted to make a difference in the lives of younger students in Forsyth County Schools. Thank you for your support of this valuable program!
