Creativity: A Theme for the New School Year – September 2, 2009

It’s easy to say “It’s great to be back at Beechwood!”. But when you say it, do you really mean it? I know I do, and from what I saw this morning, the first day of school, the teachers, students and parents are sincerely glad to be embarking on another exciting year at this great school.

Each year, before we begin, I try to think of a theme we should focus on as a community. This year, I have asked the staff and the parents to emphasize the value of creativity. In our parent orientations and in our opening staff meetings, we discussed why creativity is important and what we can do to foster it in our children.
