A NOTe from mrs. Demeyer

“The world is indeed full of peril and in it there are many dark places. But still, there is much that is fair. And though in all the lands, love is now mingled with grief, it still grows, perhaps the greater.”- J.R.R. Tolkien

At an in-service on January 3, Dr. Sojourner addressed the TCA staff. He reminded us about the challenges we faced over the course of the last year. He then said, “Even with the hard, we’ve continued to exemplify sustained excellence and Core Values focus as we help our students become extraordinary.” Dr. Sojourner is exactly correct, even during the challenges we have faced over the last year, Central staff and students have focused on the goodness that has come from a dark place. Your teachers, tutors, and children have looked to turn the difficult into beauty.

We need to remember to celebrate the good that comes through struggle and that we are the ones who can turn the dark times into a beautiful experience. Martin Luther King Jr. once said, “Those who are not looking for happiness are the most likely to find it, because those who are searching forget that the surest way to be happy is to seek happiness for others.” During the 2021 TCA graduation, Jeremy Reed shared, “As you know all too well, this world can be a decidedly difficult, unfriendly, and joyless place. I’d like to challenge you to be joyful. Please… radiate joy and force this ridiculous time and place filled with contentious people to deal with your joyful enthusiasm. Refuse to meditate on things that are ugly, destructive, and hateful, and instead focus on what is True, Beautiful, and Good. Know the good things in life. Go from each good and beautiful thing to the next, sharing it with everyone around you.  You’ll do more good this way than focusing on the opposite, forever lamenting what this world lacks.  No, Be the Bee. Bees are wonderful little creatures that work hard and work together.  The bee is more honored than other animals, not because she labors, but because she labors for others.  So, like her, let’s unite not divide, let’s comfort not agitate.  Be the Bee.”     

Talk with your child(ren) about how they can seek happiness and joy, even when times are difficult. Remember the small things like the smile on a friend’s face or reading a good book. Take time to play and be carefree while being together as a family. Consider creating a joy/happiness list of all the things that make you happy or bring you joy. Lastly, remember to share your joy as it is contagious. Spreading kindness is a wonderful way to bring joy and happiness to others.

“If you carry joy in your heart, you can heal at any moment.”—Carlos Santana

Dear TCA Family and Friends,

I am excited to let you know about a new communication mode for our community.  Drumroll please - introducing “The Titan Pulse” – a new TCA President Podcast! 

My hope is to release a short new podcast-esque transmissioneach month, usually focused on things that I’m currently involved with as President. Future broadcasts will hopefully not focus on COVID info (yea!), but will instead involve topics with bigger picture TCA educational focus, including occasional special guest interviews with founders or members of our Board of Directors. 

Please click here for the first five-minute podcast.

We Are Titans!

Russ Sojourner
President
