Here’s hoping that signs of spring and a few days of nicer weather find you feeling a bit more hopeful and energized. Yes, I did see it snow over the weekend, but I am trying so hard to look on the bright side now and then.
I am starting to realize that it probably will not be wise to plan on returning to PDS before the school year technically ends. That being said, I will continue to hold on to the possibility that we will be able to gather our classes together towards the end of June or beginning of July for some outdoor blocks of time in order to celebrate and find closure for the time we did have together this school year.
As you know, as of July 1st Dolly and AJ Kavanaugh are still on track for becoming the new owners of Pejepscot Day School, so perhaps we can celebrate endings and beginnings at the same time.
