  • Take the opportunity to explore,
    renew this spring 


    John Zureichen March, a time of transition. Days grow longer, daffodils and tulips peak up from the earth, birds announce their return with song, a lightness to our steps is found. At our schools and in our homes, we begin to plan for the next school year or perhaps graduation. March, a time when we have our feet planted in the present and the future.


    What is it about spring that creates such optimism? Science often refers to Seasonal Affective Disorder brought on by the shorter days of winter. Research suggests that for many people the extended daylight of spring boosts mood, well-being and energy. A theory holds that the chemical messenger in the brain that promotes pleasure, motivation, confidence and memory — dopamine — increases with more exposure to sunlight. Or perhaps it is just as simple as the beauty of an early spring day.


    Whatever the cause, spring is a season not to be wasted.  Take the opportunity to explore with your children and our students. Enlist the optimism of the season to talk about setting new goals and plans for the future.  Use the opportunity for rebirth to forge ahead, to overcome obstacles, to bask in the glow of the journey. 


    Perhaps the Austrian poet and novelist, Rainer Maria Rilke, put it best. Translated from the original German, the poem inhabits all that is spring.


    Early Spring  

    Harshness vanished. A sudden softness
    has replaced the meadows' wintry grey.
    Little rivulets of water changed
    their singing accents. Tendernesses,

    hesitantly, reach toward the earth
    from space, and country lanes are showing
    these unexpected subtle risings
    that find expression in the empty trees.

    — Assistant Superintendent John Zurbuchen
