“It Takes A Village” repeated Rev Tracy several times, and I agreed with her. Who is that village? Our staff, our students, our families, and our school supporters are all part of the village, but to be a village, we must all speak the same language of commitment, hard work, and accountability in our roles to educate, inspire, prepare, and empower our young people!
