“Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.” — Marcel Proust
A few years ago, a happiness researcher from the University of Colorado—yes, there is such a person—shared with us that there are two things that can have an immediate and positive impact on a person’s feeling of being happy. One is to dance and the other is to give gratitude. This is likely the reason that this season is my favorite time of year; bringing together friends and family to give thanks and celebrate one another gives me great joy.
As I reflect on our time together as a school community this year, there is much to be grateful for: acts of kindness by our students, parents and guardians who volunteer to help and who partner with us in meaningful ways; teachers and staff giving endless hours of support and guidance to students and alumni who support and celebrate the Kent Denver of yesterday and today.
There is no doubt that Kent Denver's excellence is the direct result of the vision, generosity and spirit of our founders and the generations of parents and students who have come together to build our school over the past century. With 2022 fast approaching, our alumni board, trustees, parents, faculty and many others are putting the pieces in place to celebrate Kent Denver's Centennial and express our gratitude for the 100 years of history that have made us such an extraordinary educational community.
During our Centennial year, we look forward to sharing stories, reflecting on the many reasons we have to feel grateful, and maybe even dancing a little! Watch your email in the days ahead for opportunities to be part of celebrating Kent Denver's 100th year.
Looking ahead to 2022: Kent Denver's Centennial year!
