Billy's Blog: From the Head of School
“We often take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.”
– Cynthia Ozick

Life can feel pretty hectic sometimes. As we try to balance work and parenting, and as our children feel like circus acrobats balancing the spinning plates of classes, homework, activities and social lives and hoping that nothing crashes to the ground, it’s easy to lose sight of all the things for which we can and should express gratitude.
