“The world we have created is a product of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking.” – Albert Einstein
We cannot help but have heavy hearts this fall, but please join the PTSA in being the change you want to see. We must hold the positive even when everything in the news tells us that things are very, very wrong. A terrible massacre, nuclear threats, hurricanes and mainstream racists. Our teens must know we believe we can change thinking.
Please help us support our children, and their dedicated faculty. A faculty that values Capturing Kids Hearts and Project Based Learning. A faculty that is working closely with Campbell Law School to decrease conflict and support Restorative Justice. A faculty that comes in two weeks before all other faculties, and works a longer school year just to prepare deeper, more meaningful lessons for our children
.A faculty that has created a food pantry that includes meat, fresh produce, household cleaning supplies, and toiletries for our community’s neediest children! Our CARE DEPOT turns no one away, and includes enough for younger siblings at other schools. If you work and cannot deliver, do not worry. You can order through AmazonSMILE and they will deliver for you.
