Dear Northern Light Community
At the end of our first formal week of distance learning instruction, we are filled with immense gratitude to everyone – families, faculty, students, and supporters – who helped make this school year possible.
The challenge seemed enormous and too big to bear: how do we deliver on Northern Light’s commitment to educate the whole child, foster community, and develop change-makers, without being able to do the work in person?
How do we cultivate a sense of joy, wonder, and possibility when so much of our work happens at a distance? The answer to this question doesn’t lie in fancy plans and proposals, but in dedicated and caring teachers committed to reaching the hearts and minds of every child, no matter how difficult.
