Infinite Hope

"We must accept finite disappointment, but never lose infinite hope." - Martin Luther King Jr. 
With many of us continuing to experience so much uncertainty, hardship, fear and pain at this time. It would be easy to lose sight of hope. That is why I have been thinking about the quote above. On Monday we celebrate the life, work and legacy of Martin Luther King Jr. It is also a day to reflect on all of the work yet to be done, and how we can contribute. As a school, in advisory next week, we will discuss how we can be upstanders and not bystanders, and sustain infinite hope through our actions. I want to thank students, staff and families for how you continue to help each other every day.
