Clarke Pennsylvania: Where Dreams Take Flight


March 25, 2014—At Clarke, Professional Development is an important part of our culture and staff experience. This year’s theme for Professional Development at Clarke Pennsylvania is “Dream Big.”

With that theme in mind, staff were recently asked to write three letters sharing their dreams: one to a current student, one to his/herself, and one to a person who inspires them. The letters were then placed in an envelope to be opened by the teacher at the end of the school year. But first, the staff saw their dreams take flight by making one of their letters into a paper airplane and flying them through the air on the front lawn of Clarke. The image of all of those dreams flying through the air is one that will truly inspire our teachers to keep dreaming through the remainder of the school year and beyond!
