The Last Day of School

June 13, 2012

The last day of school each year is always an interesting day.  Graduation clearly marks a new beginning for our 12th grade students. For the rest of us, the last day of school each year is a time to reflect and consider new beginnings.  As our students leave for the summer they know they will return to a new teacher, new classmates, and in many cases a new building.  This is an opportunity to continue to grow as learners and as young citizens.

For staff the last day is a chance to reflect on the year.  As the 2011-2012 school year comes to a close, I urge the staff to take the opportunity to reflect on a job well done.  This was a challenging year, marked by the untimely passing of two staff members, Sheila Truchan and Mike Price.  As we reflect on the year and the contributions of Mrs. Truchan and Mr. Price, I am reminded of the quote by Robert Louis Stevenson,

“Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant”.
