“I’ve always loved the first day of school better than the last day of school. Firsts are best because they are beginnings.” – Jenny Han
Yesterday was indeed a day of beginnings for Pilgrim students! They waved goodbye to parents, reunited with friends, and walked to their classrooms with a mix of excitement, anticipation – and maybe a bit of nervousness.
The first day of school holds inherent promise. Achievements will be earned in both academics and athletics. Students will grow in character and spirit. New interests and talents will be discovered.
During this week of beginnings, we’re grateful to welcome the entire Pilgrim student body back to the classroom for full-time, in-person instruction – after last year’s Covid mitigations required changes to protect health and safety. We give thanks for the resiliency of our students, teachers, and staff during a time that was challenging for all.
After taking a brief summer break, we plan to update our blog regularly with news, stories, profiles, and tips that will give you an inside look at the many ways in which Pilgrim Lutheran embodies academic excellence with a heart. We look forward to the 2021-22 school year with hope and enthusiasm. Please join us on this journey!
