A word from Kris

Uplift... I love thinking about the physics of flight. There are so many factors that have to interact perfectly to uplift an object.

This makes me think about how many factors that we need to uplift each other in our organization. Maybe our students and our babies can help us focus on UP...from the time babies are old enough to talk they want UP - pick me up... our focus is always on getting up!!! Take some time this next week to focus on getting up - soaring upwards, helping others up... Take time to uplift yourself and each other...together we will SOAR.
