Principal's Message

Irish-born British writer George Bernard Shaw has this to say to us today:

I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the community,
and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever
I can.

The community in which you live includes your family and friends, your
schoolmates, your neighbors, and the world community at large.

Today, remember this: Life is a privilege, and you have the privilege of
contributing to it. As a unique and nonrepeatable human being, you can
contribute in a way that no one else ever can or ever will. And you can
start today. You can contribute by simply being the very best you can be
and looking for ways to help others.
