Friday Thoughts: Perspective
At our Middle School Open House last night, we had three parents speak and offer their perspective of CAC— and it was a powerful reminder for me about our school, our role, and parents’ expectations.
It’s so easy for me to get wrapped up in the day-to-day school things, and in turn, I miss our real purpose. Last night, I was reminded of two key things:
“The teachers help us. They back up and reinforce the Christian principles we are trying to teach at home.”
“The teachers here know their students by name and by need.”
These two things are what our parents are looking for. They choose CAC because they know we, too, care about their kids. They choose CAC because we, too, want our students to know they are God’s children. And they choose CAC because we, too, want to help our students by any means necessary. It’s that simple.
Not every place is like CAC, and the more I walk the halls on Mustang Mountain, the easier it is to forget just how unique and special our school really is.
Les Brown said it best: “You can’t see the picture when you’re in the frame.” It was good for me to step out of the frame last night and get a better view of the picture of our school.
