2021, wow what a time the past couple of years have been!  As we begin the second quarter of this semester and I reflect back on changes that have occurred, the word that comes to mind is "amazing."  I am amazed at how in just a matter of days, weeks, months, and years life as we knew it changed drastically! We have gone from moving and going freely about to cautiously and methodically thinking about our every move.  Education as we knew it went from school buildings bustling and full of energy that only comes from young people!  The energy that for the first time in many years we were basketball state tournament bound! The excitement that only a senior in high school can know - college dreams, independence, and just a shadow of am I really going to be grown up!  Then we are now going from doing our school work in the building to a hybrid day and only half students in the building at a time and then back to the building.  Gymnasiums and fields went silent and no one knowing what was next.  Then back to crowds, gyms, bleachers, and cheering our teams on.  Then I am amazed again, amazed that for 9 weeks, during a pandemic, we were able to show what education is really about, not just books and tests, but boots on the ground, meeting our students where they are - in their homes with hot lunches and smiles! Amazed that once again God shows us what is really important, our family, our ER Family!  For me, that time was the most AMAZING time as an administrator of this amazing school!  
Fast forward to August and December, once again no one knows what to expect or what to do! Amazing is the word to use again, amazed that we are once in our buildings, the students full of energy, excitement to see their friends and just be together again!  Most nights are still in the gymnasium, but differently,  the classroom looks different, the hallways and cafeteria are very different.  Students are still with their new first day of school clothes and some with an added accessory for safety.  New procedures and protocols and word amazing are there again! Amazed that teachers, staff, students, and the community came together as a family, to make sure that the school year is starting off safely and with a bang! I say all this to say, that when the time is tough and change is inevitable you can ALWAYS count on your family and I cannot thank my ER FAMILY enough for an AMAZING start to the 21/22 school year and I know the close of the year and thank parents for trusting us once again with your student and helping give true meaning to our ER Family!
