March Madness

Yes, there was a Good Madness going on Saturday and it was called Fiddlers' Convention!!!! As with the college basketball tournaments, our Fiddlers' Convention takes a lot of planning and support from our staff, but it is always a great time and continues a tradition that encompasses heritage and culture. Thank you to everyone!!!! College basketball also mirrors the framework of a school. There are two identities.....the players and the spectators. Players give, adjust, and work together towards a goal...WIN! Spectators watch, judge, cheer, jeer, and so on with a goal....WIN! In educating our children, we can apply the same philosophy? Why? Why Not? Be ready to share :)
