When we look back at these challenging times we will be sure to remember the numerous difficulties that we have endured. In many ways our lives don’t look like they used to. Change and uncertainty are the new normal, as routines, schedules and procedures have been disrupted. This has had a dramatic impact on the student’s ability to successfully navigate their academic and social lives. The importance of adaptability as a survival skill is more evident than ever.
Fortunately, kids have shown a remarkable ability to adjust to their new world and remind us that in spite all the changes we can continue to celebrate living. Though masks and social distancing have now become the new norm, they haven’t let any of it change the way they interact with each other. We are inspired daily by their willingness to live in the now. Daily, we are reminded to forget our adult worries and engage in activities and conversations that are full of hope, spontaneity and joy.
