Give an extra big hug soon to any Schoenbar 7th or 8th grader
that you know, please won't you? I am so proud of the 8th graders
in particular, because I saw them at their best on their first
day of the 2005-2006 school year in the former Bon Marche store
at the mall (because their school STILL is not ready!!). I am
in awe at how adaptable people can be, when put to the test.
It's not a terrible hurricane, but the strength, patience, respect,
and optimism I witnessed this afternoon at Schoenbar amazed me.
Congratulations to the students, teachers, administrators, those
who moved tons of furniture, and the district for making the
best out of a bad situation. What a remarkable display of fortitude!
