Build a Band of Parents

Teachers and Parents are seemingly natural enemies. But why? Why don't we trust one another? When the fate of a child is on the line people can act a little nutty. Ironically the truth is that we all want the same thing; what is best for our students. So if we take all of the frustration and anxiety out of the equation imagine what we are able to do together. Today, we tell the harrowing tale of the Baltimore Colts Marching Band. In 1986 when the team tragically left left for Indianapolis, the entire city of Baltimore was left devastated. All hope was lost except for the defiant beat of the Marching Band who had stayed behind. The played year after year until the NFL would bring a new team back to Baltimore. Their dedication and commitment to one another will teach us a lot about working together.
