update

I haven't written anything in a while so I thought I would give everyone a quick update. As usual, there is a lot happening. My school is in the middle of our recruitment period where we travel around to all the middle schools in the area and give our spiel to the 8th graders who are going to be making their decisions about what high school they would like to attend. This is uncharted territory for me and I'm trying to learn on the fly what appeals to the mind of an 8th grader. We are giving them an honest look at what goes on in our school and trying to help them make informed decisions. I try to make the presentation funny and I try to appeal to their sense of different. I think that we have a different school and that our kids stand out because they have unique ways of looking at the world. Those are the kinds of kids we are attracting and the kinds of kids we want to continue to attract. We want students that are going to try to make a difference in the world. I'll let you know how it goes...
