Letter from our Dean
Dear Maple Village Families,
Something incredible happened in our Social Hall last night. Not only did our 7th/8th Grade Evergreen Class perform the play they wrote, directed, acted and for which they created all the props, costumes, and special effects and set design.. they also did everything astonishingly well! I am talking professionally- buy your ticket in advance-and sell out the seats-well. Yet, I am not sure if I was more impressed with their play or by the words of Hara, who guided them.  Before the students took the stage, Hara (from KITE) shared that with all the work she does with so many students from so many schools, she truly finds something markedly unique here.  She talked about what she sees in these students: true kindness, a deep want to help each other, an ability to take direction and grow, a refreshing maturity, and sincere caring for each other and their work.   I struggle to understand why this is so unique in teenagers, and yet, I know she is right.  She painted a picture of children who are protected over the years, and how these children are who they are as a result.  Seriously, it was hard for me to not weep. 
I look forward to watching them Promote on Tuesday evening. A few of them sat on my lap when they were in Parent/Toddler Class. "Time Flies" is a saying for a reason, and I will miss all of them very much. 
In other news (literally)..  Look who landed on the AWNSA home page! Li’ ol’ us! 
Have a beautiful weekend.
I can’t believe we wrap next week!
