It’s all good!

I recently had the pleasure of reading the most delightful children’s story to some little learners by Eric Litwin entitled, Pete the Cat:  I Love My White Shoes Pete loves his beautiful white shoes and goes walking one day.  He manages to step in strawberries, blueberries, mud, and even water throughout his explorations, thus changing the color of his white shoes several times.  Always the optimist, Pete the Cat continues to walk along his journey singing his special song about loving his shoes no matter what color they become.  “No matter what you step in, keep walking along and singing your song…because it’s all good!” ~ Pete the Cat ~

By this point in the school year, we’ve certainly managed to step into many situations and change our figurative shoe color many times—the good, the challenging, and everything in between in fact!  It’s important along the school year journey to remember Pete’s great advice because our attitude is everything on a daily basis.  I’m grateful for our learning community—our precious learners, an incredibly dedicated staff, our involved and helpful parents, support from MISD administration, and the rigorous, engaging work to challenge our learners for a prepared and successful future.  As we enter these final weeks, may each of us keep walking along singing our song like Pete, because it’s all good!  🙂
