What a beautiful time to be a Hilltopper!
Looking back at this week, it is hard to recall when it started and when it ended. The day turned into night in a blink of an eye each day. On Monday, we welcomed back our staff. Seeing their faces and feeling the energy was truly a moment to stop and reflect. Our staff were so glad to see each other and rekindle the time they were away from each other in person.
I cannot tell you how much I love opening day. The students were exactly like our staff. Hugging each other, excited, and even a little anxious with the feeling that we all get when we start a new year. Inside of months of planning, the operation pushed play. I was moved by the leadership of our upperclassmen guiding students who felt lost. It was at that moment, that I felt the rush of why we do what we do.
We love our kids, our community, and our purpose is open the door to learning, thinking, and serving. Without a doubt, the beginning of the year always can provide each of us ways to refine--but, our staff was absolutely jumping in. The bell rang and the halls where clear.
I am so proud of our staff, and our students. They are leaders and understand our purpose.
Purpose: It is a word that I say from time to time. It allows reflection, action, and a depth of questioning. We all have a purpose, and we are helping kids along their journey to find their purpose. Likewise, collectively as a school, we have a shared purpose in or mission, vision, and core values.
The short week that we had was good practice to the routines that we will model next week as we enter a full week. In this edition of the shortened Week in Reflection, some of the topics are good to review inside of the Family Reference Guide to prepare for as we enter next week. The video enclosed will give a brief highlight of the week and the upcoming full week.
