The 2020-2021 school year presented many challenges to students, families, faculty, and staff, not the least of which was learning together how to thrive in a pandemic.
We learned that social distancing can be a challenge because we want to show how much we care. We learned that it is still possible to sense a smile under a mask, just by looking at a person’s eyes. And we learned that despite the historic challenges we face, inspiring learning can continue and prosper through the incredible dedication and commitment of the Mid-Pacific ‘Ohana.
Abraham Maslow once said, “The ability to be in the present moment is a major component of mental wellness.” In other words, it is in the present moment that we achieve true happiness. Perhaps that is the takeaway lesson of school year 2020-21, as seen in the following photographs. Enjoy these inspiring moments from Mid-Pacific –moments that point the way to a bright and innovative future.
