Principal's Monthly Message
What an amazing start we have had to the school year! It is so great to be able to begin a new school year with so much enthusiasm and excitement to learn. You can see it in the faces of the students and feel it in the rooms here at the school.
For me the beginning of the school year has always seemed like the beginning of a new year more than the actual date on January first. I think this is because I have always been either studying in schools or working in them. While the actual new year is a time when many of us make resolutions to improve in some way, the start of a new school year can be a similar opportunity.
This year my oldest son has begun kindergarten and his journey through formal education. He is so excited and looking forward with optimism to every opportunity that comes with being a student and a part of the school. As I have prepared him, and myself, for this new adventure I have thought of all of the different challenges that he will encounter along the way. He will undoubtedly encounter wonderful experiences in class and on the playground. He will also surely learn some things on the playground that my wife and I will not approve of. This has been a concern of mine, however I have made a “new school year resolution” for myself. I want to make sure that as my son passes through these experiences that he has an open flow of communication with me. I want to take the time to talk with him about his day and really take time to listen. As he encounters these challenges and triumphs I want to be able to council and celebrate with him. I want to know what is going on, not just from a school-sponsored newsletter, but from my son’s perspective and experiences.
I know that each of you probably have similar “new school year resolutions”. If you have made these resolutions before and found success or failure with them it doesn’t matter for this year. Don’t miss the opportunity for this school year because of a past years experience, just set your sights on this year and on achieving your new goals. Start these goals and stay the course with them in order to turn them into a habit. As you do, celebrate your success and don’t dwell on the failure days too long.
I know that you love your children as much as I love my son. It is my commitment to you to treat your students as I would treat my own children. If you have any questions or concerns please let me know.
