Now that our campaign for school board is over, thought Mother’s Day would be the perfect time to introduce the new Reaching the Stars education blog.

Marion C. Garretty’s quote describes the power of a mother very well. “Mother love is the fuel that enables a normal human being to do the impossible.”

Yes…we CAN reach the stars. Happy Mother’s Day to all the women in our world reaching the stars and making a difference in our lives. And thank you, Anita Renfroe, for your great “Mom’s Song!” I love it!

A teacher gave her class of second graders a lesson on the magnet and what it does. The next day in a written test, she included this question: “My full name has six letters. The first one is M. I pick up things. What am I?” When the test papers were turned in, the teacher was astonished to find that almost 50% of the students answered the question with the word Mother. (Unknown)

Excellence is the result of caring more than others think is wise, risking more than others think is safe, dreaming more than others think is practical, and expecting more than others think is possible. —Anonymous
