- Head's Note
While I have written about gratitude in the past, as we near the end of our academic year I am reflecting on the importance of volunteers. Sherry Anderson has wryly pointed out, “Volunteers don’t get paid, not because they’re worthless, but because they’re priceless.” And it goes deeper than that because when we volunteer we are usually committing time, energy and resources to what we are passionate about and want to help succeed.
Volunteers at Sage Ridge make a difference with dedication and deeds. Our parent involvement connects our community by ensuring we have healthy food, wonderful events, staculty support and recognition, spirit wear, community service opportunities, access to books and uniforms, and ongoing parent education. Our Board has provided strategic support and direction providing valuable insight during this challenging time while focusing on planning for a successful future. Many of our families continue to support causes as best they can, from homeless shelters and food banks, to museums and health organizations.
This priceless work sets a wonderful example for our students. And many of our students in turn are developing an understanding of, and commitment to, the importance of volunteering. So thank you to everyone in our community who dedicates time to volunteering. For those who serve Sage Ridge, we are all grateful for your work in helping our community be the best it can be and actively embodying our values as a school.
