I’ve been thinking this week about what we may have gained, what we may have learned from the odd and disquieting circumstances under which we’re finishing up the school year at Churchill: I’m continuing to look for silver linings, and I hope you are too. One thing I’d like us all – students, parents, teachers and staff – to think about is what we’ve learned about ourselves over the last couple of months, and how we’re going to use what we’ve learned going forward, regardless of the road ahead. If we’ve learned to study and teach and communicate and engage in new and different ways, I hope we’ll all add all that to our arsenal of life skills in the months and years ahead.
A couple of administrative points for this week:
• Churchill admin staff is busily planning for the 2020 -2021 school year, and we’re planning with the assumption that we’ll have a ‘regular’ September start up. That said, we know that there will be some aspects of start up that certainly won’t be ‘normal’, and we want to assure students and families that, as the situation evolves and we learn more, we’ll keep you up to date on any changes to our school opening procedures.
• A video message will be sent to the Graduating Class of 2020 on May 29, 2020. The address will include our Valedictorian message as well as a message from your Churchill Administration.
As always, I want to encourage students to stay engaged with their learning as we move toward the end of this school year, and remind you that your teachers, Guidance staff and school administration are all here to support you.
