It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Summer
Obviously, someone who is departing a position would have more than the average bear to get done, but there is a great deal to do nonetheless. Grad is creeping ever closer, end-of-year field trips are ramping up, awards nominations are coming in as certificates are printed and MVP t-shirts are ordered. Teachers are starting to find more and more ways to move lessons outside to take advantage of the beautiful weather. More and more the lunchroom is empty as students head uptown to enjoy the weather and to buy themselves a treat. On top of all this, classes are wrapping up and final exams will need to be prepared for. It is wonderful to hear the chatter among the grade 12s as they finalize (or start to finalize) their plans for the fall, plans which often include attending post-secondary in person. The excitement and anxiety are palpable in the air. Spring has definitely sprung and we anxiously await the coming of summer.
Never in my career, have the students and staff been more deserving of a summer break. It has been a great year, a trying year, but a great year and we are all very ready to sit back and relax and enjoy some well-deserved time off. Thank you to our students, staff, and families for such a great year! Now it is time to buckle up, hunker down and give 110% for the final push until June.
