Hopefully everyone had a terrific weekend, whether you were working in the yard, playing with your kids, catching some music at the JazzFest, or just relaxing with a book on the deck. We had a quiet weekend, we spent Saturday at the University where the kids took time to look at the dinosaur bones, ride the glass elevator, run around on the grass, and have a snack. Sunday was also a quiet day, we were able to get lots of chores around the house and yard completed.
This will be a short message this week, as I just want to say thank you for an incredible year. Coming over last August, I was nervous and excited, however all of you quickly helped me feel at home, and it wasn’t long until I felt like part of the team. I was amazed at the level of adult learning that all of you have committed to this year, your hard work has helped make Waldheim School an amazing place for all of the learners, young and old. Thank you for all of your support and trust this year, moving into the principals role mid-year presented it’s own unique challenges, however your patience and honest communication helped make this a very successful year.
As we look forward to the new school year, I will be sending out some information regarding what to expect during the first week and month of school next year. Until then, create a great week, and a wonderful summer!
