#BetterTogether

Happy Mother's Day!

I hope that you've all had a lovely Mother's Day weekend. I took advantage of my children's good nature and rearranged furniture, cleaned the house, and worked around the yard with their help. It's funny how something like that can feel like such an accomplishment- especially when it's done as a group effort.

That's how the school year often feels- it can be hot, sweaty work as we shift practices to find an arrangement that works better for our learners, sometimes tempers flair, we may feel as if we will never be done, it's can back-straining at times...but in the end, the sense of accomplishment that we feel when we look at how far our students have come, both emotionally and academically, is well worth the effort. As we move into these last weeks of school, let's all remember that we are all doing the very best that we can at any given moment- and that often people are going through things that we may never be aware of. We truly are #BetterTogether and I cannot think of a better team of people to work with than the team at Winskill.
