Hi Colts,

What an eventful start to the month we are having! I hope you all enjoyed celebrating the Rangers win in whatever fashion you chose. I chose the adventure of going to the parade on Friday. I'd sum it up as traffic, people, no bathrooms, and more traffic. The highlight of the parade for me was definitely the AISD band and drill teams. They came together, sorted through every logistic, WROTE THE MUSIC, and then performed perfectly with 24 hours notice. If only the city would have called the AISD band directors to organize the entire parade... But seriously, it was an experience of a lifetime and I'm glad our students were able to be a part of it.

This is the time of year that goes by too fast. Everyone has so much to do and wants to get it all done before the break. Which means it's also the time of year when I remind everyone to take a breath and make sure you are prioritizing things correctly. I saw something yesterday that said, "By the time your children turn 18, you will have spent 90% of the time you will ever spend with them." As we near the end of the semester, I can't help but think about how quickly this year is slipping away. I feel like every time I try to cherish each moment with my kids, my 90% just goes by even quicker. Keep hugging your kids, even through the stressful times that may be ahead. We will do the same.

Enjoy the season, Colts.

Talk to you soon,

Stacie Humbles, Principal

Arlington High School
