Pioneer-Quincy Elementary School Principal&apos;s Message We talked about love at Monday's opening assembly, as that was our virtue of the week. There is the roman- tic love of Valentine's Day, the love siblings have for each other (though they may not show it) and the love a country can have for a great leader like Abe Lincoln. However, the love between parents and children is the one our young students relate to. When we ask them for examples of virtuous people, parents always come up. With that in mind, I was struck by a story my sister shared recently. My nephew was just a little guy and they noticed a ladder leaning against their garage. She wondered aloud why the ladder was there. "Daddy uses it to hang up the stars," he explained. Children can at- tribute almost magical qualities to parents. We, in turn, have an immense responsibility to be good role models. I'll do the best I can for my 25- and 27-year-old children and wish you good luck doing the same for yours. Sincerely, Shepard Kest Porter, Principal A Word from the Secretary I still have a set of keys that one of our students found last week on the playground. If you think they might be yours please stop by or call the office at 283-0520. Thank you, Jennifer McColrn, Secretary Calendar of Events .............
