Keep moving forward

Walt Whitman writes, “Keep your face always toward the sunshine – and shadows will fall behind you.”

As the school year comes to an end . . . as the summer sunshine warms our days and provides daylight well into the evening hours . . . it is important that we continue to move forward. Our growth mindset is predicated on being better tomorrow than we were today. I am confident that the next school year is going to better than the past year. Looking forward, with our shadow at our backs, we will learn from past mistakes and improve year to year.

Reflect on the past year, build on successes and learn from failures, and begin to plan for next year. Keep your face toward the sunshine . . . don’t dwell on the past . . . learn from it.
