Happy New Year!
As we greet a New Year, I am pleased to welcome our students and families back to the Ledge! The holidays can surely be a busy time. I hope that all Springs families were able to enjoy the break from routine, celebrate the traditions of faith, and rejuvenate body, mind and spirit!
Now into month twenty-two of coping together with the pandemic, we are all prone to fatigue from the roller coaster ride of what a senior recently described as “COVIDian years.” Yet like the start of every new year, 2022 promises a proverbial clean slate and the hope of positive changes to come.
For Ledgers, it is a good time to review the Ledger Way Core Values that we hold up as our guide. These six ‘pillars’ support our vision and mission, define how we hope to grow together as a Catholic learning community, and call us to be our best selves – even in the worst of times.
FAITH – We live our Catholic faith in both word and action. We are disciples of Jesus Christ, called to be living examples of both faith and stewardship.
LEARNING – We are committed to excellence in education through personal growth and achievement. We strive to be inquisitive critical thinkers, problem solvers, and team players.
LEADERSHIP – We are devoted to a life of servant leadership, going above and beyond to serve the school, parish, community and world. We are responsible citizens and Christians committed to living life, promoting peace, and fostering social justice.
RESPECT – We treat God’s people with respect and kindness at all times. We acknowledge our differences, offering compassion, empathy and tolerance.
RESPONSIBILITY – We lead by example and are accountable for our actions, even when it’s difficult. We affirm sound judgement and trustworthy behavior.
COMMUNITY – We foster a welcoming, supportive, engaging and collaborative community that works in unison to overcome challenges and celebrate success. Together we honor our traditions and work in partnership to advance our institution
I have witnessed these core values give life, hope, and joy whenever they become animated though our human choices and behaviors. It is my hope and prayer for 2022 that our Ledgers may continue to grow in the understanding and practice of the Ledger Way. Pray with me that our six core values may influence our Springs community so powerfully that the impact of “COVIDian years” may fade in our collective memory.
