Together from a Distance

“From a distance there is harmony
And it echoes through the land
It’s the voice of hope
It’s the voice of peace
It’s the voice of every man”
-Julie Gold

In lieu of our traditional End of the Year picnic and soccer game, our Mountainside community came together in typical joyous fashion for a drive by parade. With the campus decorated with balloons and signs and with music blasting, the school came alive as families drove down the driveway toward dancing and waving masked Mountainside staff.  As their cars rolled slowly by, we all shared our hellos and goodbyes, our wishes for good health and a good summer, and our longing hopes to be together again. Fond memories of the day: smiling faces, distant waves, hollered hellos, hand painted signs, dancing staff, decorated vehicles, honking horns, a few tearful moments, and lots of love behind everyone’s eyes. Thank you to our wonderful Mountainside community – it truly was a special day.
