Go Wildcats! As our own sports teams are preparing for the start of their seasons, tonight we are on our way to cheer the tackle football team from Milken High School for their Homecoming game. This afternoon the varsity players and cheerleaders came to campus to get our school spirit going, and it was a wonderful pep rally to prepare for the fun tonight. I hope you will join me at Birmingham High School at 6:00 p.m. for all of the festivities.
As we celebrated our athletic gifts we also took time today to acknowledge our students’ gifts of creativity. The projects that came in for Caine’s Arcade were really magnificent – it is amazing what our kids can do with some cardboard boxes and duct tape! We will judge the final results tomorrow, and all of our Tzedakah from this week will go to support this important project. We also took time to recognize our performing gifts with our orchestra and jazz band concert this afternoon. The students displayed great talents with their instruments, and all parents are invited next Monday night at 6:00 p.m. for an informational orchestra/band assembly.
At this time of year we take stock of our many blessings, and today reminded me of why I love being principal of this Elementary School – all of the gifts and talents our students possess are a blessing to our community!
