2020, wow what a year so far!  As we begin another school year and I reflect back on changes that have occurred just in the last five months, the word that comes to mind is "amazing."  I am amazed at how in just a matter of days, weeks and months 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!  An energy that for the first time in many years we are basketball state tournament bound! 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 virtually doing our school work and buildings, gymnasiums and fields have gone silent and no one knowing what is next.  Then I am amazed again, amazed that for 9 weeks 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, once again no one know 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!  Friday nights are still under the lights, the classroom looks different, the hallways and cafeteria are very different.  Students still with their new first day of school clothes with an added accessory for safety.  New procedures and protocols and the work amazing is there again! Amazed that teachers, staff, students, and community came together as a family, to make sure that they 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 20/21 school year and thank parents for trusting us once again with your student and helping give true meaning to our ER Family!
