Image result for fall quotes


The fall season is upon us. It is so easy during this season to get bogged down with the passing of warm and beautiful summer days, filled with sun and long relaxing days.  However, one of the most beautiful parts of this season is the gorgeous colors that come with fall and its changing leaves.   Changing leaves in the fall reminds me of a leaf as it begins to change colors and the beauty of those leaves once they change.   As we start the fall season, my wish is that we each begin to see the positive changes that come with each new year.


Changing leaves are a beautiful thing.  Each one is different in its color and intensity of that color.  Leaves are fragile.  They can fall apart easily as the seasonal rain comes and goes.  However, leaves when viewed from your front porch to the Great Smoky Mountains can create a beautiful, yet powerful, living image.  A school community works in the same way.  We are all unique; none of us are exactly the same.  We are also more fragile under certain conditions.  However, when we all combine together as a school community we can create a beautiful, living image.

Let's let the gorgeous colors of fall combine to create a beautiful, powerful living image of growth and success.

Respectfully yours,
Mary Cook
