Hello from the Principal

I was hit with a harsh dose of reality last week when I overheard a group of fourth graders discussing vaping. Vaping, in case you are not familiar, is the act of inhaling and exhaling the vapor produced by heated nicotine liquid of an electronic cigarette It’s also commonly called JUULing (pronounced jewel-ing). Not only did these kiddos know what vaping was, some had even tried vaping. I was dumbfounded, “but you are just babies,” I thought as I looked at these wee ones who have only walked the earth for nine years.
