What's going on at RMS?

In my reading this week, I came across something that reminded me of the importance of working as a team. The following was written by Chuck Swindoll in his book, The Finishing Touch.

Nobody is a whole chain.

Each one is a link.

But take away one link and the chain is broken.

Nobody is a whole team.

Each one is a player.

But take away one player and the game is forfeited.

Nobody is a whole orchestra.

Each one is a musician.

But take away one musician and the symphony is incomplete.

You guess it.

We need each other.

You need someone and someone needs you!

Isolated islands we're not.

It takes each of us in our individual roles to build a successful school. As we grow in our profession, we continue to strengthen the chain the binds us together and grows our school stronger. However, when a link is missing or a link becomes weak, it decreases the capacity of the entire chain.

Therefore, let us always encourage and support each other. Let us work together to strengthen and build capacity in others around. Let us always reflect on how our decisions impact the strength of our chain, and let us always realize that "alone we can do so little, but together we can do so much!"

Each and every one of you is important and we could not do "school" without you! Have an awesome week at RMS!
