When a Student Took a Leap of Faith (Literally!)

Hello there, wonderful members of our Crosland community! 

If you thought our school life was all about books and routines, hold onto your hats – I've got a tale that'll tickle your funny bones and remind you of the joy in embracing the unexpected. So, gather around as I unfold the story of a daring student, my expanding baby bump, and a bounce that defied the laws of physics (sort of).

Imagine this: a sunny morning last year, our school buzzing with the delightful chaos that makes Crosland so unique. Yours truly, an admissions director navigating pregnancy while nurturing families on their journey, was about to become part of a story that still brings smiles to our faces.

In the midst of the laughter and energy, a student (let's call him "Young Gravity-Defier") decided it was the perfect time to put his acrobatic skills to the test after a heartfelt goodbye wave to mom at dropoff. With the grace of a leaping gazelle (or perhaps an overenthusiastic squirrel), he soared... and bounced squarely off of my very noticeable baby bump.

Now, you might expect shock and concern to fill the air, but this is Crosland – where the extraordinary is the norm. Instead of gasps, there were giggles; instead of panic, there was laughter. It was as if everyone present collectively decided, "Hey, let's add 'human trampoline' to the list of skills our staff possesses." And guess what? Young Gravity-Defier emerged from his gravity-check adventure with a grin, and my bump remained intact – all parties involved, safe and sound.

In our Crosland community, I think the motto is "Expect the Unexpected," and this belly-bouncing escapade was just another shared experience. We're not about fitting square pegs into round holes; we're about celebrating those pegs for being gloriously square.

So, dear students, parents, educators, and professionals who make up our Crosland world, here's to embracing the chaos, to laughing in the face of gravity (and sometimes belly-bouncing), and to finding magic in the unpredictable. Let's raise our imaginary glasses to the resilience of our students, the unity of our community, and the tales that unite us in laughter.

Until our next shared chuckle!
