*Staff stepping up for other staff, without complaint, and with a smile on your face.
*Kids helping out one another in classrooms and in the hallways.

As I moved about NYC on Sunday, you can imagine that my mind wandered more than usual. I was thinking about my family, each of you, our students, and any number of other topics. Then, when I woke up on Monday, I saw this post, A Cause Bigger Than Ourselves, from my friend, Ben Gilpin (@benjamingilpin). I don't shave the day of a marathon, so November 1st was an easy way to start No Shave November. Ben encapsulated everything behind the meaning of the month but the thing that really caught my attention was the focus on relationships. You know how much I care about the relationships we have with our students and with one another. Movember is just another way to make connections with our kids.
Have a great weekend, enjoy some family time, and be ready for another great week of learning!
