We shape the world around us, and the world shapes us. We feed off of each other in a constant state of change. But, the more that you are able to recognize that the challenges you embrace or the new things you try will help you to grow as a person and broaden your horizons, the richer your experience and the impact you can have on others can become.
During 2020-21, to observe social distancing guidelines, we are not holding daily Chapel for grades 1-8. Instead, we are offering weekly virtual Chapel gatherings on Thursday evenings.
Even with the tremendous changes in our lives, we are aware of the upcoming observance of Holy Week, the last week of Lent. That is, Palm Sunday March 28th, through to Easter, April 4th.
The gift that Lent is, to be aware that one who loves us is bringing us into being, melting our hearts, freeing us to let go, to trust, to forgive.

The Episcopal Church is radically welcoming, rejects falsehood, aims to respond to prejudice, and to walk the path of peace, courage, and integrity. Knowing your values in this tumultuous time can make you more determined, hopeful, and resilient.
Today's events remind us of the vital work that we engage in every day in our classrooms and the culture of love and respect that are at the heart of our school.
