Beautifully Different.

There is an annual event and online initiative, started in 2009, called #reverb10 that challenges bloggers (new and old) to reflect on the year and consider what’s next. Each day they provide bloggers with a prompt to help keep the creative juices flowing. While I have not been actively participating (we’re already on December 10th and although I’ve known about the project for awhile, I’m just starting now) I have been watching the site for inspiration and ideas.

As I checked out the prompts that have been offered over the last ten days the one from December 8th caught my eye:

December 8 – Beautifully Different

“Think about what makes you different and what you do that lights people up. Reflect on all the things that make you different – you’ll find they’re what make you beautiful” (Author: Karen Walrond)

As I think about all the things that make Stoneleigh-Burnham School different I am struck by how true the statement is. It really is our differences that make us “beautiful.” It is the comfort you see on the faces of our girls in the hallway, the fact that we are all girls to begin with, the size of our community and the connections between students, faculty, and staff . These are the things that make us Stoneleigh-Burnham School, these are the things that makes us different and the things that make us beautiful.


We know how to work hard

and when to have fun.

We know when to take ourselves seriously,

and how to foster strong relationships between our students and faculty.

We know the importance of recycling.

We are an international school...and we like it.

We recognize our talents. (Student work: Mikae Sasano '01 "Monkey")

We embrace our traditions. (Stoneleigh-Burnham Sweater Girl)

We are the Owls, we are Stoneleigh-Burnham School, we are beautifully different.
