As with many things in life, we are asked to sort through the news we encounter each day, mentally applying the labels of urgent, important, and interesting. And though I’d like to think that everything shared on this blog is newsworthy and important, the fact remains that some things deserve to be highlighted and called out from the crowd; elevated, if you will.
One of the great attributes of this blog is my ability to give special attention to certain stories by placing them in the photo “feature” section on the home page. The stories placed in the feature area can be accessed by clicking on the pictures, but will not mingle with the blog entries found here.
So if you’re new to this site or returning to snoop around, I hope you’ll find all you’re looking for! Please help to make this a place for community conversation by leaving a comment below.
In this world of instant and constant and everything-at-your-fingertips, it’s become obvious that a monthly newsletter simply does not adequately provide our community with the information needed or desired.
That’s why, after a lot of consideration, I’ve decided to start this blog. With new technology abounding and more ways than ever to access information, this “home base” will serve as a dinner table of sorts: a place to gather ’round and walk through the school year together.
My hope is that this blog will become:
- a place to access news about JPS
- a venue for sharing our accomplishments
- an exhibition hall of our bond-related construction progress
- a community of sharing and learning together
I humbly ask that it not become:
- a sounding board for your frustrations
- a place to speak disrespectfully or unkindly
As with any community, we must extend grace and do our best to listen well.
Please use the subscribe button to the right or add me to your reader, and check back often for updates and photos. I’m excited to join you in the blogosphere!
