Dear Willamette families,
The other night, after my own daughter’s school year had ended, I noticed her looking a bit sad while doing some drawing. As she had been anxiously awaiting the start of her summer, I asked her what was going on. She looked up at me and replied, “Do you know how some people get homesick when they are away from home? Well, I think I am schoolsick!”
I can certainly relate to how she felt. While we all tend to look forward to summer, I will miss the wonderful energy that Willamette is filled with throughout the school year. I am incredibly grateful to work alongside our gifted staff of educators and the caring, dedicated students we serve. A year ago, I was elated to join the Willamette community, with the culture of excellence this school is known for. As we break for summer, I am continually inspired by the work our staff, students, and community do each and every day, striving to ensure that all children can reach their potential. Thank you for the generous and warm welcome you have given me this year.
I hope you all have a safe and relaxing summer break with friends and family. I look forward to hearing all about your adventures in August, when we come back together to begin another awesome school year at Willamette.
