“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.” – Winston Churchill
We are on a journey together . . . a journey to ready today’s students for tomorrow’s challenges. Our work is simple, yet incredibly complex. Each day is a battle to stay Above the Line; each day is a struggle to live our lives with intentionality, on purpose, and with skill.
We are going to be successful; we will grow with our successes. We will experience failures; we will learn from our failures. What we will not do is stop. We will face critics, we will face those who want school to look like it used to look, and we will face those, even within our ranks, who resist our passion for growth. These people – those who operate by default and resist change – will not bring us down.
We have the courage to continue. We are committed to our values; we will be relentless in our pursuit of excellence. The time is now . . . the journey has started. Each and every day summon that courage to continue – that is what counts.
