Then came February which somehow always feels like the longest yet shortest month of the year! Reports cards have gone home, we've celebrated Valentine's Day, managed two awesome ski days on Mt. Bachelor, survived a mellower version of snowpocolypse, embarked on the 21-Day Happiness Challenge, and are all looking forward to our upcoming lower school music performance on February 28th in celebration of Motown and Black History Month.
Schools are busy places. So, what ties it all together? Quite simply, love. Love for each other. Love for our teachers. Love for our administration. Love for our students. Love for our families. Love for our friends and for our neighbors. And love for ourselves. As we are slowly coming out of the long, dark nights of winter remember to treat each other gently - both in your words and in your actions. And more importantly, treat yourselves gently. After all, it's all love.
