Happy Thanksgiving from Mr. Mufson!
As our nation turns from non-stop news coverage of the election to the coming of Thanksgiving, I find myself feeling particularly grateful for the respectful, caring, and character-focused nature of our Country School community. On a daily basis, our teachers help our students learn some of the most important and human of lessons. We act truthfully, even when it is hard and when much seems at stake. We don’t call people names. We don’t make fun of others. We don’t bully. We deal honestly and fairly with others. We treat others kindly, with respect, compassion, and generosity, as we want to be treated ourselves. We try to get along with those with whom we have differences. We strive to be inclusive. We even aspire towards moral courage. I am thankful that our teachers model these values every day and that our students, in turn, do their best to reflect them.
In the end, what we adults say, how we behave, and the example we set matter. I feel fortunate to spend my days at a school that, while not perfect, realizes that our children are indeed listening and watching.

I wish you and your family a warm, bountiful, and glorious Thanksgiving.
