|A Note From the Headmaster
This week I did something I have never done before as a parent. I enrolled my oldest son, Luke, into school. I am sure you guessed it- He will be attending GP next year as a 6th grader. After years of homeschooling, we have decided to make this change and are very excited, but also nervous and emotional. Ashley (Mrs. Navarrette) has certainly shed tears realizing she only has half a year more with her firstborn son at home with her.I do not have so much sadness per se, but I am excited to have time alone with him on our drive to and from school; I have planned out a lot of our talks.How will you remember to show respect for your teachers and love for your neighbor?How can you make friends at a place where you really do not know too many people? What do you do if you see a peer not seeking good? How will you help others choose the right and do so in love?
How will you remain humble and diligent and work through the various challenges you will face?
How will you show kindness and find opportunities to serve?
I certainly found myself nervous at various stages in the process- filling out the application, completing the paperwork, going to the doctor to get his immunization report, and checking with our office to make sure I did everything correctly. I will soon be ordering uniforms and books and making sure we have a plan for who will pick him up if I have to work late, what sports he will play, and what ECNAs he will join.
This is such a significant time for my family. I have always known as an educator how special our community truly is, but now I have seen it through the eyes of a parent. Mrs. Hayakawa found me and was just smiling as she showed me Luke’s student file, officially labeled. As I walked out of the office this past Wednesday, I casually told Mr. Withers: “Luke has a student file”. His reply- “I am so excited for him to be here next year”. It was a moment for me to stop and consider what a blessing for my son to soon be surrounded by such wonderful people who truly care and seek his best interest. Know that I have officially joined you as a fellow parent (at least paperwork-wise), and I am excited for the years to come we will share together!
