"The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives." ~Robert Maynard Hutchins

Summer is over and we are back into the swing of school as if we never left! While the summer for me was filled with trips to the beach, parties with friends and watching my children simply enjoy being kids, it is time to move back to school life. It was truly wonderful!! 

The library is already a hub of activity! It is great to see the new seniors embrace their position at the top of the pack. They are all working hard and filled with enthusiasm, excitement and determination as they prepare for this important year. The freshmen are finding their way around, eager to learn the ropes of their new school, meet their teachers and enjoy being a high school student! 

The favorite part of coming back to school is seeing the students we have missed, having them come into visit and tell us about their summer adventures! It amazes us to see how they have grown and what they have done over the summer! It means a lot to us to have these bonds with the students.

And on that note, I wanted to share something that was given to us by a graduating student. Francesca was one of my Com Sem students, an incredibly talented and intelligent student as well as being an amazing artist. She was a constant visitor to the library. She presented us with one of her original artworks and we are proud to have it hanging in the library!

"Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself."  ~John Dewey
