Principal's Message

A Case for Hope

The first day of school on Wednesday was the most significant observation of hope in our students that I have witnessed in a while.
The well-known psychologist and hope researcher, Dr. Charles Snyder, defined hope as a positive cognitive state based on goal-oriented determination with the corresponding planning to achieve those goals.  What I observed in our students was just that – hope in action. So many students were cautiously prepared to embrace new friendships, adapt to new guidelines for school life, and encounter the rigors of the various subject areas of their new grade level. The first-day-of-school experience energized our teachers. Within a few short hours, it seemed as though the dreariness that all the pandemic related restrictions had resulted in was beginning to correct itself.
In the world of business, one can sometimes hear the admonishment that “hope is not a strategy”. In our work with young people, however, cultivating hope is indeed an intentional strategy. In a pre-COVID published article in Forbes magazine (Feb. 2019), hope was credited for increasing productivity, resistance to stress, cognitive flexibility, and social cohesion in the business world. 
Is this not what we seek to accomplish in education, too? Yes, it is – now more than ever.
I wish to share some of the positive assurances that Woodman teachers expressed, as we gathered to formulate a vision for our students before the first day of school this year:
“I am positive that better days are fast approaching!”
« Je suis positive que nous pourrons retourner à une certaine normalité pour retrouver et profiter du temps avec nos amis, ce qui nous a manqué beaucoup durant la pandémie. »
“I’m positive about the opportunity for kids to be engaged in extracurricular activities this year and looking forward to coaching again. Go, Wolves!”
« Je suis certaine qu’en travaillant ensemble, nous pourrons tous nous épanouir. »
Joining you in hope,
Ms. Krickhan, Principal
