A Season to be Thankful!

As we approach Thanksgiving, it is a nice time to reflect on the good things in our lives.  It is so easy to over look the good things and dwell on the not so good.  

This school is a blessing in itself.  The children tend to treat each other as family, complete with sibling rivalries. We have many students who are driven here each day from Browning by family members who want them to have a great educational experience.   I truly believe that we provide them with a safe, loving, and academically challenging school environment.

I am truly lucky that I have a job that I love to go to each day.  The students bring us such joy, and sometimes heartache.  But they are worth every moment of pain.  There are always those silly moments that make you say "It doesn't get any better than this!"  Kids spontaneously singing in the vehicle on the way back from a field trip.  That random hug in the hallway.  The kid who sees you at the grocery store and says "I miss being there." I am thankful for each of these interactions.  

I can honestly say that I wouldn't change a thing in my life. Not that I wouldn't be thrilled to win the lottery, but I'm good that way it is.  I am blessed with family, friends and a great community.

I hope that everyone enjoys the up-coming holiday season.  Don't forget our Mini Pow-wow on Tuesday, November 24th at 12:30.  The Christmas program on Thursday, December 17th, and our community luncheon on Friday, December 18th.
