Yesterday I had the opportunity to read with a scholar from Miss Ray's class. Reading with the director is a reward they have in their class. Not only is a reward for them, it is a reward for me. We had a great time as she read me one of her favorite stories followed by a fun conversation. I am grateful for the opportunity to work with the great scholars who come to Noah Webster Academy.
This friendship began in 4th grade at Noah Webster Academy. Today they are in their senior year of high school. Although they attend different schools, the friendship that started so many years ago is still strong. "Inspiring a lifelong love of learning, leadership, and service" is part of our mission statement. I think we can add lifelong friendships as well.
