Another week of learning is this new and challenging format. I hope you are all doing well and continuing to focus on the positives that change brings to us. As we have discussed as a faculty – it’s all about having a growth mindset and resilience is something we all need to foster in ourselves and our children. I read a few wonderful quotes this week that seem appropriate to share – “Typing LOL is not the same as actually laughing out loud” Alana Semuels. “Don’t worry if you are not the perfect homeschooling parent; don’t worry if you are torn between working at home and helping your kids. Don’t let your kids spend nine hours a day doing schoolwork online – cut them off and tell the teacher it was too much. Don’t let these days be joyless for your kids.” Jennifer Gallagher. On behalf of our entire NSS school faculty I wish you a joyful and healthy spring vacation week. Celebrate the positives as hopefully those will be the ones our children remember always.
