It is common to hear parents use the phrase “it takes a village” to describe the network of grandparents, neighbors, co-workers and friends that all help their family get through life, including soccer practice carpools, meal trains, school pick up, letting the dog out and much more. This same phrase, “it takes a village,” came to my mind as I reflected upon the Catholic Education Foundation Futures Art Event at Boulevard on February 8.
When I think about the Catholic Education Foundation, I smile. I smile because I cannot think about CEF without seeing the faces of students in our Catholic schools, and those faces always have the biggest ear-to-ear smiles and grins. In fact, the smiles of our students almost distract from their eyes. Our students’ eyes sparkle…well, maybe they do not sparkle during math tests (!)…but they definitely sparkle when they talk about their schools.
