We begin the academic year with renewed energy and determination to discover our hidden gifts and talents and to use them in pursuit of something bigger than ourselves. On the final day of school in June, I met my incoming class. As always, I asked the students to write what they were thinking and feeling about being in this third grade class. Many were excited to be a part of the opera experience. Many were nervous, not knowing what to expect with the opera process. What Ashley wrote inspired me to begin thinking about and planning for fall, 2017. So here we are. I won’t let you down, Ashley. Thank you for your enthusiasm for what is to come, for what is to be.
I feel excited for 3rd grade and I am ready to learn new things about life and ready to move on.”
