Quote for the Week:


Twelve years from now, your future self is going to thank you for something you did today, for an asset you began to build, a habit you formed, a seed you planted.
Even if you’re not sure of where it will lead, today’s the day to begin.” 
– Seth Godin

At the end of the rainbow (sent by a parent: click the link):

At the end of that rainbow is a pot of gold in the form of humans who love our kids where they are and push them to continuously better themselves and their community in the face of a world that tells them they can't. 


I'm grateful for every adult on this campus pouring into our kids and urging them to grow into kind, knowledge-seeking, world-changing adults. Seriously, thank you guys for leading a culture of acceptance and encouragement. You are appreciated.


Thank you!
