Dear Lawrence Families,
This edition is bittersweet for me. I am sad that I need to go home and help my parents and yet am glad to be able to provide this support for them. I am honored to have been able to serve the Lawrence Community for the 2016-2017 school year. I will miss you all and I hope that I have made a small difference for our students, staff and families.
I’d like to share with you a poem that hangs in my home in Denver.
“I have a premonition that soars on silver wings,
It’s a dream of your accomplishments of many wondrous things.
I do not know beneath which sky or where you’ll challenge fate,
I only know it will be high,I only know it will be great.”Anonymous
Last week the Habit of Mind was REMAINING OPEN TO CONTINUOUS LEARNING. I think that’s appropriate for a sign off from me as a lifelong educator. I would encourage everyone to be a lifelong learner no matter how many candles they have on their birthday cake.
Here’s wishing you all the best in the future and have a safe summer!
Warren L. Blair
