Virtue of the Week


"Patience and diligence, like faith, remove mountains."-William Penn

Patience is quiet hope and trust, expecting things to turn out all right. Patience is being calm and tolerant when difficult things happen. It means showing acceptance when you or others make mistakes.

Patience is doing something now so that later it will bear fruit, like planting a seed and waiting for it to grow. Patience is a commitment to the future.

Affirmation: I am patient. I am gentle with others and myself when we make mistakes. I wait calmly. I trust that things will turn out.
Jack Hall

A Special Tribute

It is with much sadness and joy that this week we said good-bye to Mr. Jack Hall.

Jack was a faithful member of our team here at Peachtree. His love, compassion and patience for the children was endearing. We will miss his smiling face, quiet demeanor and fun times in both the gym and in the classroom.

Thank you Mr. Jack for planting and cultivating the seeds of success here at Peachtree. We wish you well and love you more!
