The Highcroft Herald

Week of September 19-23, 2016

Rainy Full Moon Friday

Wednesday night, I was walking my dog and noticed that the moon was just a "sliver" shy of being a full moon. Knowing that Aaron would be out the following day, I made a point to tell my husband that it wasn't quite a "full" moon. He isn't in education so he didn't understand why it mattered.

The actual full moon was on Friday. Did you feel it? I know for many of us, we had a very stressful end to the week. What mattered the most was that everyone worked together and filled in where needed. That is what I love about Highcroft. No one worries about their "job description" and pitches in to help. It would be impossible to thank all of you who adjusted your schedules and stepped up to assist. Please know that we truly appreciate it.



1. As you know, our first annual Trunk or Treat will be on Friday October 28th. It would be fun if some of our staff members would be willing to decorate a trunk. There are plenty of ideas on Pinterest if you are at a loss for ideas!
