Our Vision: Every Student a Success!
We are entering the final quarter of what some might consider a daunting school year. It has definitely had it's challenges. However, each one has been overcome through collaboration and working together. In honor of our teachers and parents during National Poetry Month, I share with you a poetic reminder of what it takes to build and craft the minds of our young scholars.
I dreamt I stood in a studio,
And watched two sculptors there.
The clay they used was a young child’s mind,
And they fashioned it with care.
One was a teacher—the tools she used,
Were books, music, and art.
The other, a parent—working with a guiding hand,
And a gentle loving heart.
Day after day, the teacher toiled,
With a touch that was deft and skilled.
While the parent labored by her side,
All the values filled.
And when at last, their task was done,
They were proud of what they had wrought.
For the things they had molded into the child,
Could neither be sold nor bought.
And each agreed they would have failed if each had worked alone,
For behind the parent stood the school,
And behind the teacher, the home.
