Launching a New Tradition: The Turtle Club
Last week history was made when a new tradition was launched in the Middle School. The first Annual Induction to the Turtle Club Hall of Fame was held, honoring 16 individuals who have persevered in the face of great challenges. This special ceremony was so named because the turtle is a totem for perseverance, for sticking steadfast to our path when the going gets tough, and for living into the famous fabled message, “Slow & steady wins the race.”
As the weather settles into its seasonal routine and the school year winds down to its rapid close, it seems especially fitting that our final spirituality theme is Changes – a look at the natural process of life and death, new beginnings, and moving on. Each grade level will spend the last few weeks exploring age-appropriate aspects of the theme, but all students will engage in reflection on the challenges and triumphs experienced throughout the year.
