Principal's Page

There is a classic book called The Geranium on the Windowsill Just Died, but Teacher You went Right On... by Albert Cullum.  The long and short of it is to encourage ourselves to free the spirits of our children, find the teachable moments in life, to laugh, to love, and to enjoy the long and winding road!  Today, we had the opportunity school-wide to celebrate the magic of nature when a very tall and beautiful Blue Heron graced us with his presence on the field!  Our students treated him with respect by finding another area of the field to play.  They sat quietly around the edge of the field to watch this graceful creature stealthily hunt his prey, which turned out to be the gophers on our field...we actually saw him catch and eat at least four of them!  They talked about the heron, they named him "Henry," and they reveled in the experience of something wonderful and unique happening on our campus.  I loved watching them watch Henry as they sat side by side.  They came to me at small points in the day after having done a little "research" in their free moments to share  something they learned about Blue Herons.  I love every day of our work here at Kelly School.  And today had just a little more magic than usual...because we stopped, we were silent, and we allowed the world to teach us something special.
