Reflecting on Schools: Our Awesome Places of Learning

Sometimes it is helpful for all of us to take a step back and reflect on the tremendous value that we have in our schools and in communities. Today we remember that our teachers, students, staff, and families are truly awesome. We are blessed to have schools that are learning organizations – places where students are challenged every day to be incredible people and incredible learners. And even on dreary winter days like today, we feel a deep appreciation for the beauty we see all around us in the faces of our children, the care of our teachers, and the commitment of our communities. Our schools are exciting places filled with the wonder of learning – our schools are amazing!
