A successful beginning
The opening of school went smoothly and our students were outstanding: lots of smiles and enthusiasm all the way around! Our older students demonstrated leadership and kindness as they helped new students find their way. I want to thank our Diversity Leaders for creating colorful signs and posting them all around the school, pointing new students (and faculty!) in the right direction to find their classes. All of our student leaders do such a great job in setting the tone for our school culture as a place that is accepting and safe. In speaking with our freshmen class at their orientation last week, I told them that they will find the culture of our school to be respectful and caring; it certainly felt that way today.
