Principal’s Message for February
"The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." - Helen Keller
At the age of 19 months, Helen Keller became deaf and blind as a result of an unknown illness. These challenges did not stop her from achieving her goals. From a very young age, Helen demonstrated her heart and determination to go to college. In 1898, she entered the Cambridge School for Young Ladies to prepare for Radcliffe College. She entered Radcliffe in1900 and received a Bachelor of Arts degree in 1904. She was the first deaf-blind person to do so. We may think of heart as a symbol or an organ in the body. However in this context, it means to be strong willed, to have determination and spirit, or to have great enthusiasm.
As parents and supporters of our students, encourage them to have heart. Let us show them that we also have heart by encouraging them to set goals and assist them in achieving those goals.
At ELP we have heart and we love our ELP family. Please join us for some family time. Share Breakfast and Story time with us this month.
