PARENTS' SURVEY(Please Click Here)
From the Desk of Principal Palmer
Dear Parents and Students,
On my desk I have a plaque that was given to me years ago. It has a little boy on it with a quote, “A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove... but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child.” It sits there, usually being ignored, but every once in awhile I notice it. It serves to remind me that in spite of the tough tasks that from time to time darken my days; life is a joy. It also serves to remind me that I am lucky.
I work in a loving, talented community. Everyday I get to hear the laughter of children as they absorb so much, so enthusiastically. I have to admit that I occasionally envy the teachers who spend their whole day in a classroom with a bunch of wonderful kids. (But I do know how hard those teachers work and I admire and appreciate everything they do.) One great aspect of my job is that I have the pleasure of watching five year olds grow into being young adults.
Watching the faculty and staff is absolutely inspiring. Their energy and commitment keep Pansophia running full speed ahead. I have never worked with a group of people so willing to go the extra mile not just for their students but for their colleagues as well.
Just the other day I was speaking with teacher and we commented on the willingness of Pansophia parents to step up and give time and energy to the school. We had a packed house for our student’s holiday presentations. You guys are not unique in this regard, but you are certainly way ahead of the curve. Thank you so much.
I hope you enjoyed the time of the holidays with your nearest and dearest, family and friends, those who love you and care for you. This is a time to be thankful and to look forward to what the future has to bring.
Happy New Year and all the best for 2015!
