Thankful for Westchester

Posted by Rochelle Lofstrand on 11/26/2018

Today at morning carpool, I was thrilled to see so many smiling faces (students not the parents) jumping out of cars ready to come back to school!  During this time of year, it is important to pause, look around, and give thanks for all that we have in our lives.  Here are some of the things that I am thankful for: 

  • our school 
  • our students
  • our teachers and staff
  • our PTA and all of the support they provide
  • our parents
  • our community

Over the next couple of weeks life here at Westchester will get a little hectic with MAP testing, Expedition Celebrations of Learning, a general PTA meeting, WE presenting at the CSD Board of Ed meeting, and Term 3 ending. During this hectic time of year, take time to be thankful . . . I know I will!

Pay attention. 

Be astonished. 

Tell about it."
