Happy Spring Time!!!!
I just love the spring, with all of the trees blooming and planting flowers and gardens. All of our planter beds have been planted and the seeds are beginning to sprout. Everyday is exciting to see how the seedlings have changed overnight. Some seedlings are growing taller while others are adding new leaves. The potatoes are growing huge, and it’s almost time to add more dirt on top of the leaves. Everyone can not wait to see what the plants look like full grown and eat the yummy vegetables!
There is nothing in life that compares to being a parent–both the highs and lows. My three and six year-olds are an ongoing source of astonishment and a daily reminder that patience is a hard-earned virtue.
Working in a company devoted to children’s education gives me the privilege of connecting my work with deep personal values. The opportunity to build a school from the ground up is a project that has captivated a number of us for years.
The immense change that we’ve undergone in recent years as a society has brought a new focus, perhaps a strengthened set of values. The school emerged out of a small team’s energy to build a new kind of educational community. This is the time for The Grove School.
It’s a place devoted to each child and helping them understand their place in their community and the world. To fostering a community to support these children. And to combining special teachers with a learning plan that gives each child the best start possible. I just wish there was one in my neighborhood!
