We’re just back from the fall potluck at PSCS, one of our annual whole group community gatherings at the school each year. This one was more lightly attended than most, having to do with, I suspect, the number of students who have been sick lately. Of our 41 students, 6 were out sick today and a 7th went home not feeling well at noon. We also have 1 staff member out.
Still, regardless of size these are always feel-good events. We end each of these sitting in a large group circle and sharing what at PSCS we call “appreciations.” Un-facilitated, for 30 minutes people say things they are grateful for. It may sound a little corny in print but in practice it’s pretty special.
Today’s picture is of Ella that was taken at a park near the school (see how I managed to include both a member of my family and a reference to PSCS in there?).
