Dear SKS Families,    I have always enjoyed our SKS Spirit newsletter as I always think it captures the vibrancy and energy of this wonderful school community. There are two SKS Spirit newsletter links to this last blog of the school year and my last blog at SKS. The one Spirit is our graduation issue which always has a picture of the graduating class and their high school destinations on the cover.  Eleven graduates attained academic scholarships totaling nearly $150,000 in scholarship money awarded. Our graduates get into the high schools [...]

Christmas 2021

 Dear SKS School Families,  My hope is that you find great joy in this Christmas season.  At a conference this past August the speaker discussed the difference between joy and happiness. Do you know the difference?  I always thought they were basically the same thing.  The presenter said that happiness is usually based on external influences:  "When I have enough money or get a new promotion, I 'll be happy."  "When I buy a bigger house, I'll be happy."  "When I  get the next new thing,  I’ll be happy ...."
