I was a substitute at MACS today. I am at a loss for words in describing to you just how incredible the principal, dean, and the rest of the staff at this school are. The accountability and expectations of respectful, appropriate, and kind behaviors is at a level I have not experienced in over 30 years, and since my time in a Catholic school. Not only do the students display behaviors that will allow them future success, but the administrators and staff show care for the children's safety, and act in ways that will ensure these students great success in life. I am truly inspired, amazed, and feel such a sense of gratefulness for what is taking place at this school. Parents, school staff, and students, pat yourselves on the back for creating a school that lives up to the expectations and ideals of what so many of us know create productive, knowledgeable, outstanding people. It's so often said by schools that this is what they're mission is, but a rarity and exception to see it being done. If you are fortunate enough to be, or have a student here, be sure to not only give thanks, but to appreciate and utilize the very rare opportunity you have been given.
