We Have Just Begun

 

It was early Sunday morning after a busy week of Orientation, and I was in my office taking care of loose ends before heading to church. Through the window, I heard singing, and as the song got louder and the words became clearer, I realized that someone was singing the Alma Mater. In fact, four young women from China were not simply singing; they were belting out a joyous rendition of our school song, complete with hand motions. They were all new students who were returning from an ESL placement test, and they had just learned the song two days before as we traveled to our annual overnight trip with new boarding students. The fact that they were singing our school song, singing it so early in the morning with such gusto, singing it after taking a test and after a long weekend, was a clear indication that we were off to a great start to the school year.
