Weekly Parent Email – January 14, 2022

January 14, 2022

While pondering what to write for this newsletter, I looked at my desk and saw something my daughter created hanging by my computer. Her project features Williamburg’s elevated ethics: build, serve, go first, respect.

  • Build: I build others because I want them to succeed. I build myself by doing hard things.
  • Serve: I use my time and energy for the benefit of others.
  • Go first: I am a leader. Leadership is making and keeping commitments.
  • Respect: I treat others with humility and humanity.

These principles excite me. It excites me to include them in my own life, and it excites me that our students get to learn about them and receive support from mentors and classmates while doing so. How are you implementing these principles in your life and in your family? How can these elevated ethics benefit your life?

As we start a new semester, I hope this reminder of our core principles inspires you.

On a different note, we are actively looking for more members of the LAU Board! If you’re interested in supporting the mission of LAU, please visit this page to learn more or apply to join the LAU Board of Directors.

Here’s to a great winter semester!
