We’re off!  The 2017-18 school year has begun with all of its excitement, a bit of the usual anxiety most of us experience, and the promise of challenges which surely lie ahead.

In spite of the usual race through these first days of classes, I have caught occasional glimpses of the Houston flooding which give me perspective on my own day-to-day tasks.  Seeing the support and kindness neighbor is sharing with neighbor, in the midst of catastrophic conditions in Houston, reassures me that people care for each other – just like in Northview.  I am fortunate to serve the Northview community, and I am very thankful for this wonderful opportunity.

Some of us – young and old alike – return rested from a relaxing and restorative summer break; others are quickly swept forward reluctantly to meet the structure of the new school year.  Whichever is the case for you and your family, welcome back!

Here’s to a great year for each of you and for all of Northview’s children!
