In the Moment

Evergreen first dayBeing September, I am inclined, by nature,  to write about all the joys that await us this school year. We are at the beginning of a great adventure together. What comes next? I am eager to share my excitement about upcoming field trips, festivals, playdates, class curriculum, projects and more. There is so much good stuff ahead.

It takes effort to be in the moment.  It can be tough to appreciate today just for today’s sake.  But more than anyone, Evergreen students are in the here and now.  Their joys are immediate.  As I write, they are learning and discovering, exploring and creating. At this precise instant, they are doing what comes naturally—they are growing and becoming. Even our new toddlers are relaxed and engaged. We can learn a great deal from our children.

I look forward (there I go again) to seeing parents at Back-to-School Night. It will be a great opportunity to meet your child’s teachers and learn about what is coming in the months ahead (again).  See you soon.

Until then… find peace, breathe deep and smile.

Cheers, John
