Groundhog Day – no shadow for Punxsutawney Phil – spring will be here soon! Not that I really put a lot of truth in this particular annual rite, but climate change and the reappearance of El Nino does support the notion of an early spring. While I worry about the long term impact to our world given the warming temperatures, I very much am at a point in my life where I welcome a shorter winter season.

I had lunch with a group of 10th graders today. This is something I try to do each week – have lunch with students – and it is a great way to get to know them.
Gill St. Bernard’s is a private, coeducational day school for students age three through grade 12, located in suburban New Jersey. Each of the three school divisions provides a vigorous, meaningful and age-appropriate curriculum, and all students benefit from the environmental learning opportunities that exist on our 208-acre campus.
