Message from Mr. Mudrick
It’s All In The Way You Look At It!
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Listed below is a letter I wrote to Lounsberry Hollow parents and guardians just slightly over a year ago with minor iterations, as my message to you remains the same. Please be reassured the L.H. faculty and staff adore working with your children. I am very fortunate to see this work in action daily, Mondays through Fridays, during the school year.
Science is correct in its belief that humans need at least four basic elements to survive: water; air; food and light. It goes without saying, this virus battle is tough. However, as Lounsberry Hollow “strong”, we continue to be grateful that all of us have access to water, air, food and light.
Much is being written about the concern for our nation’s students suffering academically, as a result of school closures and the limitations of virtual instruction. Well, I want to focus on the idea that perhaps many of this generation are actually advanced due to the character traits being developed during these challenging times.
Some benefits which are impacting this generation of young people, include:
· Comprehending the value of service occupations to us- our grocery workers; truck drivers; teachers; public servants; health care workers;…;
· Learning how to “stretch” a dollar and how to live with less “stuff”;
· Learning the trait of empathy, as we see others around us in pain and in need of assistance;
· Developing our own creative “juices’ and reading more, writing more and perhaps, reflecting more about the beautiful things in Art and Music;
· Treasuring increased family communication time, and the opportunity to enjoy meals together; and so on,…
I look forward to your continued partnership with our faculty, staff, and me, as we continue to partner with you in working to collaboratively further enhance the “whole child” development of our students at L.H.
At the end of these challenging times, our students may actually come out ahead, not behind. I suppose, “It’s All In The Way You Look At It!”
Stay Safe and Be Healthy!
Dennis J. Mudrick
