Hello supporters and friends of the Positive Change Courtyard
It is hard for me to believe how fast time goes by and that it is almost four years since the tragic passing of Jack and Conner. All of their classmates have now graduated from South... and yet their memories are sustained in our beautiful courtyard. During this last year, we had kids from the IOP classes build and paint colorful picnic tables that match the colors of the stunning mural. The over hang for rainy days was completed and 5 beautiful benches of concrete and wood were installed.
We have been patiently waiting for the engraved stones which will be delivered this week!
We hope to have them all installed and officially open the completed courtyard by the end of the month. The courtyard has been open all of this school year for student's use and I have heard beautiful stories from students and teachers alike about the serenity and peace they find from being in there. The birds love the space too and last easter, the courtyard was blessed with the new life of three baby birds.
I don't know if I would have ever taken up this project if I knew what it would have taken, but in hindsight, I can't think of a more meaningful legacy to leave the high school with- My last child is graduating this year, which also seems incredible to me. And my father's contribution to a bench will always honor him. I am deeply gratified and grateful
I will post again soon about the grand opening if any of you can make it.
Loving wishes for a wonderful 2015.
