TSC school year ends with virtual ceremonies
Harrison senior holds sign
I want to thank you for your dedication in helping our students wrap up this unprecedented school year. I understand the closure of our schools and transition to remote learning created challenges, but I am proud of all of our employees for persevering to finish strong.

I hope you will join us in celebrating more than 800 graduates from Harrison and McCutcheon High Schools who will be recognized during virtual ceremonies June 7. This special day is not possible without your hard work and dedication.

I hope you have an opportunity this summer to relax and rejuvenate for next year's potential challenges.

Mindfulness Matters
with Anne Marshall
 The month of May in the school business is generally full of rituals and routines, pomp and circumstance and celebrations of accomplishments with optimism for the future. This May has looked and felt very different. We adapt and grieve the loss of a typical end of the school year, but focus on positivity for the days yet to come. A couple of resources to address wellness during this time, as May is Mental Health Awareness Month: Be Well Indiana , Anthem’s May Minute s and this informative

Google Drive sharing graphic
In the coming weeks the interface you use when sharing files from Google Drive, Docs, Sheets, Slides, and Forms will change. This change will replace the previous interface used to share files and manage members of shared drives. The new interface will make it easier to share files only with specific people without expanding access beyond what’s needed. More information about the changes can be found here .

"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree." - Martin Luther

It has felt as if the world has indeed gone to pieces these last months. I see this quote now and whisper with a little shame, "Did I plant my apple tree anyway?" I wonder if amid the anxiety and isolation, was I using my gifts? Did I instead freeze into immobility or throw my hands up in frustration and let go of what I knew I could still do? Perhaps times such as these last months offer our greatest
chance to learn something about ourselves. Considering the state of our apple trees could reveal a telling portrait of who we are when the only audience to notice what we are doing is ourselves.

How this employee demonstrates the TSC State of Mind: Amanda has embraced remote learning. Her students are working to create "pandemic journals" so that they can document this period of time from their point of view. We are living through a historic event never seen by this generation of students, and she has encapsulated a mechanism for them to record these events in a personal manner.
