Today was the last day of the 2006-2007 school year at Clear Spring, and we finished up with our usual program called "the Celebration of the Child." Each child is honored for the special qualities he or she brings to the classroom. The awards are for things like "best sense of humor," "always caring," "most improved in math." There is a balance in the awards between matters of character, and academics. The Celebration of the Child is always a time of reminiscing and story telling, and what is really shared is a deep sense of caring about each and every child.

As Calvin Trillin stated, "either your children are the center of your life or they’re not and the rest is commentary."

I m pleased to be associated with a school in which each child is front and center.
