I believe firmly in silver linings for any and all situations. This situation is a unique and uncharted one, but this does not mean that silver linings do not exist. In between finding new ways of learning, I encourage students/families to spend some time each day to identify that day’s silver lining. I have asked the Sprague staff to do the same. If you do not mind, I will share my silver linings from today. I promise I will not share my identified silver linings with you each day, but please know that each day I will be identifying these linings for myself.
Today’s silver linings:
1. I had some extra sleep time this morning before meeting Wellesley colleagues. I love my sleep!
2. I had extra time out of my work clothes. I love comfy clothes!
3. I was able to chat casually with my mom midday today! When does that ever get to happen?!
4. I received a handful of pictures/videos from Sprague students/families demonstrating their new ways of learning. What a treat! Please keep these coming.
Similar to Friday, I had the pleasure of collaborating with my talented Wellesley colleagues today. During this collaboration, we happily worked/continuing to work to address all topics related to this unprecedented time. This is and will continue to be a work-in-progress, but I will say all conversations are with our students/families in mind. Additional details are unfolding and will be shared soon.
I can add being grateful for everyone’s patience and understanding to my list of silver linings above. Please consider it one because it truly is!
Sweet dreams, Sprague! I will be back in touch.
