A Note From The Superintendent's Desk -
The month of December seems to fly by with all the activities going on and preparing for the holiday season. Last week I stopped and ask myself, what is it about this time of year that makes me feel alive?
The answer was not hard to find. It is not receiving gifts. Even though I enjoy the seasonal music, it was not that either. The first answer that came to mind was giving and helping others.
I had the opportunity to take eighteen students to Alton Payless Shoe Store last week to receive a free pair of shoes. My heart was filled with joy watching the volunteers who helped the students pick out their shoes.
It is our responsibility to model kindness, caring, and helping others in need. The most common way to help is by giving money. But there are many other ways to show compassion for others; volunteering at a food bank, visiting a nursing home, or even smiling and complementing others.
Mt. Olive CUSD #5 promotes kindness and caring by having food drives sponsored by TNT (Teaching Tolerance) and Student Council at the Jr. High and High School level throughout the year. National Honor Society has a toy drive for the less fortunate. An annual coat drive is held at the elementary for children who need a warm coat during the winter months.
As a parent, I must model kindness, caring, and helping others. I will also create opportunities for my children to understand the joy of giving.
I challenge everyone to spread love and hope during this holiday season.
