From the Director of Student Enrichment Services
Those of you who know me know that I am a planner. My team and I spend countless hours brainstorming possible solutions to both real and potential challenges. We work steadfastly through the logistics and the necessary resources, budgets, and timelines — all while constantly considering the benefit to our community and ensuring that we are as transparent and consistent as possible. As you can imagine, COVID-19 has been hard on my planner soul. It’s been hard on all of us.
COVID-19 has taught me and my team to roll with the punches. It has taught us to reevaluate success. With an ever-moving goal post, we have learned to find success in new and creative ways, allowing us to focus on the well-being of our community.
Providing enrichment opportunities has become more important than ever. In this current environment of constant physical and social distancing — of virtual birthday parties and cancelled life events — our students need opportunities to connect with those who share a common interest. They need physical outlets. They need fun and balance. They need risk-taking opportunities while keeping them safe and healthy.
Please know that in this time of uncertainty, when you find yourself helping your children navigate this new world that is strange and foreign to even you, you can rely on your enrichment teams to be thoughtful, caring, and passionate about offering the best and safest outlets possible.
“If you can’t fly then run, if you can’t run then walk, if you can’t walk then crawl,
but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” — Martin Luther King, Jr.
We will keep moving forward together.
