End of Year Poem and Reflection from Principal Clement
In an end-of-the-year note to students and parents, Principal George Clement shared a reflection and a poem about the historic and difficult 2019-20 school year experienced by students at Minuteman and around the nation.
Read his note, in part, below:
…Lastly, this spring the coronavirus pandemic and the problem of racism have forced schools to reexamine learning, teaching, technology, inequity, social-emotional health, bias, prejudice, and privilege. There are many words I could write to express my thoughts and feelings, but please accept my poem below as a personal and professional reflection on these complicated days since we closed the school building in March.
I hope you and yours stay safe and enjoy the summer. We look forward to seeing our students again and experiencing brighter tomorrows.
