One foot here, the other foot there.

April means living in two worlds. All the complexities of this school year plus a lengthening list of tasks involving next year.

Staffing, school plan, budget, PTA Board nominations, textbook orders, enrollment, incoming kinders, it just keeps coming.

This is one of the best and worst things about school-it constantly renews.

So an even finer level of preparation, flexibility and prioritization is necessary. Today’s tasks and challenges don’t go away when you are considering next year’s enrollment. This year’s budget doesn’t close since you’re drafting next year’s.  PTA activity doesn’t cease as we seek new leadership.  Student connections today remain crucial despite incoming family registrations for tomorrow. 

It’s an interesting time of year.
