My Future HOPE'rs

Next year I have the privilege of being the (co)adviser for the HOPE squad. The HOPE squad is a new leadership team at our school. Their focus is on kindness and compassion. This year I have already had the responsibility of selecting our new team, planning service projects, designing our new baseball t-shirts, and calender planning for next year.

The HOPE squad has already been a group at our school for two years. They have been working with the fantastic counselor -- and are already a tight group. Many of next years members are current members. I was afraid that I would feel like the "third wheel" of the group. Today in the middle of one of my morning classes I was surprised with a yummy treat and card. They wanted to welcome me on board! The best part was ... it was 100% their idea -- pulled off with the help of Mandee.

I am so excited to be part of the kindness group next year. I hope that I can help make a difference at our school -- and in these kid's lives. School is so much more than academics -- it is learning how to treat others ... and I am honored to be part of the team.
