In the turbulent wake of last week’s unimaginable tragedy, I have spent a good deal of time trying to gather my thoughts through an unfamiliar mix of both horror and hopefulness. Those thoughts turned inevitably, to my own son and his experience in this world, and especially his amazing experience with all of you at Northlake Montessori. It seems sad that sometimes takes the worst of things to remind us how precious every moment is
I take the greatest comfort in knowing that our Owen is able to spend part of his days with a group of teachers, caregivers and administrators that are the most talented, loving, respectful, capable, strong, unique, dedicated, and hardworking that we know. His time with you all has been, and im sure will continue to be, genuinely incredible. What you do for him and his classmates everyday is a gift. We say thank you, but we can never thank you deeply enough for the love you all give so freely to our son and to all his friends and classmates. This is true of every single one of you, and we have seen how you all pull together to make sure every day goes well for every person, again and again.
As we continue forward, I know the children and families of Newtown CT will be in our hearts and and minds, and I will take solace in that. I also know that for now, we have been fourtunate enough to find our way to your school, and count ourselves blessed and lucky to be part of such a wonderful community as you all have created.
Thank you everyone.
