It is hard to believe that we’ve arrived at the last week of the 2019-2020 school year which in truth feels like two different school years – one that happened before March Break and the other that has happened since. The “first year” included numerous highlights including the Bike-a-thon, Grandfriends’ Day, Christmas Bazaar, “The Tree Lot Christmas” musical and Student-led Conferences. These events were beautiful opportunities for members of our school community to gather together. The “second year” has presented far more challenges than highlights, as we have been quarantining, isolating, physical-distancing, and learning at home. Obviously one of the most challenging things has been growing and learning together while being apart. This is certainly a time we will never forget – even if in some ways we’d like to! And yet I hope that we are intentional about remembering not just the struggles and the things that didn’t go the way we wanted but also the beautiful things that have happened along the way. And as we remember I hope we continue to look forward to the time we can also re-member. Prominent Christian author, Parker J. Palmer, writes in his book, To Know As We Are Known, “to remember means literally to re-member the body, to bring the separated parts of the community of truth back together, to reunite the whole.” He adds, “The opposite of re-member is not forget, but dis-member.” It is my hope that as we remember this year – especially the past few months – that we will do so knowing that we navigated those while remaining very much together as members of the BCS community. Thank you to all of you for the ways you made that happen! We certainly look forward to re-membering with all of you in person in hopefully the not-too-distant future!
