Unlike a news story, a blog post can be whatever you want it to be about. In the case of The Country Day School’s new blog, our only proviso will be that it have something to do with our tagline, education with balance, and offer a glimpse behind the scenes.
As a school, we encourage our students to embrace a life of balance in all that they do. And as educators and administrators, the faculty and staff try to do the same. In the uber-connected world that we live in, this is sometimes a tall task. But persevere we must, as we know that balance can offer a calming environment in which to learn, play, create, compete, grow, thrive and live life to the fullest.
It is our hope that our Education with Balance blog will represent a community-wide voice, not just the voice of a few. As they say, “It takes a village.” We hope to have contributors from all of our constituencies partake: faculty and staff, students, alumni and even parents. The posts will come through the Communications Office, but will represent a communal perspective on what goes on at this great school we are all part of.
So without further ado, welcome to CDS’ Education with Balance blog! We will strive for weekly posts, so come back often. And if you have a blog post idea or submission, please send it to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. All are welcome.
