It is hard to believe that Thanksgiving Break is already behind us. In my last post, I referenced our Core Virtues.  In October we learned about gratitude and in November we are focusing on generosity.  As the school year speeds past and we enter the holiday season, I find it important to slow down and reflect.   

As I look back on our school year, I am grateful for the community that supports Caprock Academy.  Our students and families enrich the Caprock experience in so many ways.  From the hundreds of volunteer hours and donations to our Campus Security Project to the tireless commitment of our teachers and student families, the Caprock community has much for which to be grateful.   

Yet, our success does not come by luck.  It is the hard work, dedication, and generosity of every stakeholder that allows us to thrive.  This year, as we enter the holiday season, I want to encourage you to continue to stay involved.  For those of you who have not yet found a volunteer opportunity or wish to give to the Campus Security Project, CO Gives Day is a great way to get involved.   

As we prepare for the coming weeks of respite, family, celebrations, and overeating, I hope you feel as grateful for the Caprock Academy family as I. May you fill your heart with laughter and thanksgiving ready for a strong finish to our second quarter. 

Happy Holidays.
