I hope you each had a productive week and that you were able to manage the significant Halloween energy throughout the district! On Monday, our WHS students took part in an assembly in which they heard from Chris Herren, a former professional basketball player (including playing for the Celtics) who nearly lost everything in his life due to substance abuse. Among the many pieces of his talk that resonated with me was his reminder that we often think of addiction as it looks in someone’s last days and not how it started in their first days. I think our students took heed of his cautionary tale of how easy it is to become an addict and of the ensuing pain caused among families and friends. Many thanks to our high school PTSO for sponsoring such a great speaker on such an important topic.
And thanks to our staff for everything you do to support our students each day. Have a great weekend!
Congratulations to our Bates colleagues!
Vanessa Bussberg & Trevor Packard on October 7th and Christen King & Daniel Rehac on October 21st.
Wishing you joy in your lives together.
