Director’s Welcome

Welcome to another school year, a start that looks very different from what we have experienced in the past.

But let’s not look at our situation in a negative light. Instead, let’s take this opportunity to think outside the box and try new things. Do things you may not have had time to do in the past like cook, read, draw, work out, sing, paint, write a book, meditate, help in the family business, why not start your own business. But most of all, be patient with others and kind to everyone. We are all in this together and we must help each other.

This school year will challenge all of us – but we are ready to rise to the occasion. We will meet this school year with flexibility, as changing circumstances will require us to react, adapt and think on our feet. We ask that you join us in our flexibility as we all face this pandemic with a positive mindset.

And while we can expect and hope for certain things, we also need to find patience and fortitude to be ready for change. We know that at a certain point in time, this pandemic will be part of our past, and as a result, we will come out of it stronger and more resilient. You, our students, are equipped with grit, perseverance, and patience. Those characteristics will see you through these difficult times.

We will continue to keep you informed as things develop. Take a look at the News From The Activities Office tab to see the posters that show what is in store for the first quarter. Continue to check for updates on the Activities page from time to time. You can also always email me with any questions and suggestions.

I look forward to seeing all of you in action again!
