A Message from the Principal

Our Bucket Filler Drawing Winners
Our Bucket Filler Drawing Winners

Learning opportunities come across our path periodically, and some of those experiences are more invaluable than others. For example, during the past few months, wherever you went in Portland you heard and saw DUCK PRIDE. Monday night, we cheered harder than ever for our Oregon team in the first ever National Championship Game. In a matter of three hours, we went from cheering to be number one to realizing that we were number two. The competitiveness of wanting to be number one and suddenly realizing that we won’t be number one creates an emptiness that can consume you.

Walking through the halls on Tuesday, I heard our kids talking about the Ducks and how sad they were that they lost. I listened to teachers, parents, and other students consoling them. However, it was one parent that captured this essence of seeing the bright side in a difficult situation. The child talked about how he would just leave his Duck gear in his locker because they lost. The parent said to him, “Wear your Duck gear with pride. So what, we lost, does that mean we are not fans? We can’t stop believing because we aren’t number one. Be proud of what our Ducks did this year.” The student then said to his mom with a smile, “I think they are still number one.” She replied, "If you believe they are your number one team then cheer for them.” With that, the sad frown turned to a smile and all was okay again. 

See, competition is something we deal with every day. It is great to win, but a true champion sees victory in defeat. For

those of you who watched the game and were sad, take time to talk about your feelings and listen to your kids. We all need perspective.
