    Spurgeon Cougar Cable:  Kindness Personified

    This time of year can be stressful for everyone.  There are many causes of that stress to be sure.  The semester is ending and it has been a long haul to get here with the newly compressed calendar.   There are two major school-wide tests that push both our staff and students in very real ways (e.g., the Constitution Test and the District Writing Exam).  There are family pressures for both staff and students with the looming holidays.  For staff these are likely to be quite varied.  For quite a number of our students and families at Spurgeon the pressures and stress are related to basic survival. 

    Saturday we had a food distribution that was sponsored by the Tzu Chi Foundation.  We distributed food, blankets and clothing to over 280 families here at Spurgeon.  I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again, this is not the work that most schools have to do.  However, it is important and valuable work for us to do here at Spurgeon.  Some might ask what we get out of doing this work?
