Sometimes it’s the little things that make a difference in the life of a child. This past week, we placed the word cloud banner with names of all the 8th graders on the wall outside the media center. Each year I see groups of students gathered around determined to find their name. I hear our students in 6th and 7th grade talking about how much they will miss them. Teachers give hugs to students who will be leaving us. But a visit from one of our football players helped me realize just how important our yearly endeavour is to these kids. He made a point to stop in the media center to tell us couldn’t find his name on this wall! The student didn’t act like he was upset; but for a big, tough, football player to make a special stop in the library to tell us, it WAS a big deal. Thank goodness we were able to find his name on the wall when we went to look. If we hadn’t been able to find it, a new banner would definitely have been made. Congratulations to the WJMS class of 2014! You will be missed.
