“Just as despair can come to one only from other human beings, hope, too, can be given to one only by other human beings.” – Elie Weisel

Am inspired not just by the quote above but also by the person who wrote it. Elie Weisel was a Holocaust survivor. His life reminds us, that in the midst of difficult times, it is the human quality of caring for one another that holds the fabric of a society, a community. . . a school.

Since my arrival a few months ago, I have been very impressed with two things that make Liberty Elementary a special place to be. I am very impressed with how much you care for each other and for the children of this community. When you have a family atmosphere, you are also able to care for children in a way that makes all children feel welcome and invested in their school. Why do our students love coming to Liberty Elementary? because of you. . . know this and embrace it. Your smile in the morning may be the only smile they had seen that day.

Am also very impressed with your tenacity in the midst of difficulty to make every day the best day for our kids. We have been through some difficult circumstances this semester. Yet every morning, when I walk the halls, I see a staff that is going above and beyond any circumstance they may be going through, to make every day a successful learning day for our children. You all do so many special things for our kids behind the scenes: getting Christmas presents for those in need, getting churches and community groups involved to make sure that no kid is left without a Christmas.

Liberty Elementary you are wonderful place. I love being part of this family and would not have it any other way. . .now that.

My family and I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
