Quote of the Week

This week's quotation, in my opinion, relates to the way that all of you are responding to the horrible tragedies in Haiti:

"A candle loses nothing by lighting another candle." ~~ Erin Majors

Almost as soon as the earthquake struck Haiti and the news carried stories of devastation and loss, some of you came to school with dollars in your hands and concern in your eyes. I know that we sometimes don't feel connected to the plights of others because we have a tendency to get lost in our own day-to-day issues, but you always seem to 'get it' when it comes to having sympathy for who are facing enormous obstacles.

Thanks to all of you who have reminded me that we all need to come together and help as much as we can when our fellow man is in need. We'll talk more about this issue and what we can do to help in the days and weeks and months ahead.
