Question of the Week: My School

The school year has come to an end. The kids are running out the door. Teachers are cleaning their rooms for the summer. Parents are busy making summer plans for camp, vacation, sitters and the pool.

For some children, school is a great source of structure. Meals are consistently provided, the classroom is an appropriate and comfortable temperature. There are adults there that are kind and care for them. They can play at recess and escape the reality of what’s going on at school.

School is a place of learning – something that is critical in today’s society. School is a place where our children meet their friends, explore interests and talents and find mentors that will influence who they become and how they live their lives. School provides consistency and routine; fun and play; growth and development; exposure to others.

But sometimes we need a reminder of why we appreciate school, especially at the end of the school year. We are grateful that we have a school to go to and that we can look forward to returning in the fall. We are lucky to have great teachers who care deeply about our progress and our future.¬†What would we do if we didn’t have a school to go to? Who would teach us if our teachers weren’t there?
