I am inspired by all of the friendships created at Providence Day School. After the long weekend, many students, teachers and staff members were glad to come back to PDS to share their weekend experiences with friends. I happened upon two LS students of different ages, just happy to see each other. I listened to a teacher describe her son’s engagement including the ring in a plastic Easter egg, another co-worker describe her adventure of staying in a “tiny” house with her husband and two children, another talking about her new dog and showing us the scratches as proof and even the shared news of the death of a parent. Through the good and bad times in our lives, our PDS friends are always there to listen. Some of my best friends, I met the first day that I came to PDS 28 years ago.
