Small red chairs on a colorful rug.

Posted: October 10, 2016

It was class photo day for the ZAC preschool students last week–the class of 2030–yep 2030!  What will the world look like in 2030?  What learning and skills will our students need to be successful?

Each of these chairs gets filled with a little bundle of JOY.  Each of us once sat in chairs just like these.  Who made a difference for us?  How did they do it?  What will the journey for these students, the class of 2030, look like?  Will we fill the journey with HOPE?

These are big questions that challenge all of us in public education.  Sometimes it can be overwhelming and then you see the JOY, like in this video, and you realize it’s just one interaction, one lesson, one kind word at a time that makes that 14 year journey so special.

Here’s to a great week of HOPE & JOY.
