“Do the best you can until you know better.
Then, when you know better, do better.”
—Maya Angelou, Poet, Author, Activist
In the spirit of Maya Angelou’s inspirational words, this year’s fundraising event is a celebration of the power of knowledge– its wonderful, magical ability to help us make thoughtful decisions and take positive actions that benefit others, ourselves, and the world around us. Maya Angelou’s prudent advice reminds us of the value of education and encourages us to learn more so that we can make wiser choices. Her directive also comforts us with the reassurance that we can always improve ourselves, an especially liberating message for anyone who has ever made a mistake. Like Angelou’s message, our own Seven Arrows motto, “Passionate learners, Compassionate leaders,” acknowledges the strong role education plays in guiding us to fulfill our ethical obligation to make the world a kinder, better place.
So, join us on Saturday, May 13th as we support our school’s ongoing effort to expand our children’s minds and hearts so that they may continue to improve themselves and do good things for humanity. It’s an evening that we “know” will help us all “do better.”
