“So while it’s true that Thanksgiving only comes but once a year, we should actually celebrate thanks each and every day. It’s just a matter of learning to live with a spirit of gratitude.”
The teachers and I want to wish all of you a wonderful Thanksgiving – a time to enjoy your families both near and far. I hope we’ll remember to thank God for all the blessings in our lives and realize that sometimes our challenges become our blessings. May we find the time to express our gratitude to all those who help us along the way, each and every day, in both the big and small things in our lives.
I’d like to express my gratitude to all of the teachers who stay after school to work with our kids either with clubs or school work, and to so many parents who coach, do scouts, forensics, adventure club and so much more. We are so blest to be able to offer all that we do and it’s because of your generous spirit and gift of time.
Enjoy your turkey and have a great Thanksgiving.
