Family and Friends Day

It was lovely seeing so many parents, grandparents, and friends at Family and Friends Day this morning! Thank you for so much: for coming, of course, but also for being good sports about participating, and most of all, for engaging with the students whose families couldn’t attend. Everything we do models for our children, and teaches them, whether we’re conscious of it or not – and by showing interest in your child’s classmates, you were modeling kindness for them. Thank you!

I understand, of course, that not everyone has a job where they can take off time. I know when my own children were young, I for one could never attend events that happened during the school day. I’m sorry you couldn’t be there, but know that your children seemed fine, and we all had a good morning.
