While I was supervising last Monday morning, a little one rounded the corner, slid through the snow dusting the ground and announced, “this is awesome!” Despite the shivering I was doing, I couldn’t help but smile.
The smiles and the laughter spilled into our halls last week! I noticed a productive, uplifting atmosphere pervading the building. The learning was present but so was the fun. Practical jokes seem to be finding their way into our school: lighthearted, harmless fun. Therefore the laughter of our staff has been noticeable too!
Curriculum, productivity and results are all critical but the relationships surrounding those things are key. This week, the snow has disappeared, the sun is shining, people are smiling and my mood is elevated.
