It is hard to believe that May is already upon us. Although the usual “April showers” have seemed to linger into the beginning of the month of “May flowers,” the days are indeed longer and the opportunities to take advantage of outdoor activities are upon us. It is, of course, a hectic time of year, and the end of April proved busy with a number of events that highlighted the rich work and supportive community that we continue to enjoy at Haldane.
The second annual student-staff faculty game has quickly become an entertaining tradition that affords our high school students the opportunity to engage in some spirited and healthy competition with their teachers. The attendance by our elementary students and families is a testament to our supportive community. Most impressive, however, is our high school students’ ability to successfully organize and facilitate this entire fundraiser. It truly speaks volumes of our students’ characters and willingness to nurture a healthy and positive educational climate in our school district. Their work served as an exemplary model for our elementary students, many of whom were in attendance. If you were unable to attend, I would be remiss in not mentioning that the faculty proved victorious this year in squeezing out a 60-57 win in a game that came down to the final seconds. It was a valiant effort all around, and I look forward to participating again next year, assuming my body can continue to withstand the challenge of trying to compete against our talented young athletes!
