We are very pleased to introduce you to this year’s officers!! The women and man of this year’s council represent an incredible group of people. Everyone is a parent, FIRST. Some hold professional careers outside the home, some hold professional careers from inside the home, and some are spending their days at home rearing children. Bottom line: lives are packed and busy, for all of us. The children of all these parents, combined, represent the ages of two through twelve, with every single year represented. This is really quite remarkable to have all these ages represented. So, allow me to emphasize how much we get where you are, because we too are where you are. We get that child one has soccer (at the dinner hour), child two has dance (which is 10 minutes from the soccer field), child three has piano lessons (which is 15 minutes from dance), and child four has somehow managed to get into the food coloring minutes before you are about to exit the house for soccer practice. Deep breath, right?! Not working…..not working…..
Parenting is hard, no doubt. It is life’s endurance test. You will find, the more involved you become, the less crazy things are going to seem. This is not because your crazy schedule has changed, but rather because you have a great group of people who can empathize with your plight, and are willing to offer help and guidance, a listening ear, a conversation break from the craziness, a laugh and a smile. And on top of all that, you get to offer YOUR input on cool kid stuff. It remains to be the village, at every turn, that creates great school communities.
