My Thanksgiving "To Do" List

November 26, 2019

I think the first and last items on this "To Do" stand out to me for this upcoming Thanksgiving Holiday.  When I count my blessings I include all the families, faculty and staff at Rohan Woods School.  This team is what makes this school so amazing.  And the last item, Just Breathe, is so important when we are stressed.  Please be sure to give yourself a moment to breathe and enjoy the people around you...your friends, your family and your Rohan Woods community.

Happy Thanksgiving,

Sam
