What a wonderfully delightful evening the Field Faculty Follies provided for the Brimfield and Suffield communities on Thursday evening. While the district has recently experienced varying degrees of turmoil, this was an evening free of negativity. In fact, the students and adults had a grand time dancing, cheering for the performers, and laughing along with the emcees, Mr. Irland and Mr. Scherer.
It would have been impossible in such an atmosphere not to feel the pride of being a Field Falcon. In seeing how much the students enjoyed watching the entertaining skits of some of their role models, it reminds us of the importance of meeting their social and recreational needs as well as their educational needs.
If the atmosphere of the evening is any indication, there is a great amount of support in our communities for our wonderful children. And that is certainly something for which to be thankful.

Well said, Rebecca. Perhaps there's hope the levy will pass in May. That money isn't available till 2014, so perhaps we can also have the board replaced by then, as well!
