A Message from the Division Head

by Ann Sulzer

As we head into this Fall Break, students are ready for some downtime and some time with families. This week in Chapel we celebrated gratitude and what we are all most thankful for, from the small: “the sound of my puppy snoring” to the big: “that my family loves me so much.” We closed our Chapel by singing along with Mr. Adams to the Traveling Wilburys song, “It’s Alright” which includes these important lines to remember: 

“Well it's alright, doing the best you can

Well it's alright, as long as you lend a hand

Well it's alright, remember to live and let live

Well it's alright, the best you can do is forgive”

What better messages than to remind all of us that we are doing the best we can, and to offer our kindness and grace to the people around us. I wish you all the best for this Fall Break, and we look forward to seeing you when we return to school renewed and refreshed for an amazing December. We are so grateful to have all of you in our community here in the Middle School.
