I took advantage of an opportunity to visit another local private school in the area today. This school is also a K-8 institution that has not been able to expand into the high school grades. The building principal and I had a good conversation about learning and new opportunities. It was evident that she, too, had been considering ways to make the learning experience of her students more vibrant. I left a number of handouts/invitations to our upcoming parent meeting on January 22 with her, and she agreed to distribute them to her 8th grade class and parents.
Clearly, it is important to make connections.
