FROM THE PRINCIPAL’S DESK
It is now February and it’s hard to believe that soon, our children will be able to enjoy warm days once again. There isn’t much we can do right now, but to look forward and hope for better days. When there are glimmers of light that do shine through, it is our job to freeze those moments and savor them.
This winter has brought us a new president and leader of our country. During the inauguration, the best part for me was listening to Amanda Gorman read her poem. It filled me with more hope and fostered a sense of collective purpose. Let us savor a few lines:
to compose a country committed to all cultures, colors, characters and conditions of man.
And so we lift our gazes not to what stands between us,
but what stands before us.
We close the divide because we know, to put our future first,
we must first put our differences aside.
We lay down our arms
so we can reach out our arms
to one another.
We seek harm to none and harmony for all.
Let the globe, if nothing else, say this is true
