Into a new hallway.
Through a new door.
New classmates, new teachers, new names to learn, new places to find.
So many questions. Will I fit in? Will I make friends? Will I keep up? Will I do better here than in my last school?
What starts as a day of trepidation becomes a day of transformation. A first day at Pilot is the beginning of a journey of discovery. Finding strengths. Meeting challenges.
Learning how to learn, not just what to learn. Each adventure as unique as the child who embarks upon it.
For so long, he shrank in his seat. Hiding. Wishing to be invisible so he wouldn’t get called on. That was then.
Today, his hand shot into the air. The tips of his fingers straining to go

And his teacher did pick him. And he did know the answer. He beamed with pride. And his teacher beamed back. This is the joy of learning. This is Pilot.

At Pilot, fellow students are allies, not adversaries. They all share in the journey. The ups. The downs. Champions for one another, they persevere. And prevail.
Feet inch forward on the cool, smooth tile. Toes curl under, grasping the rim. Eyes gaze into the
clear blue water
And suddenly, liftoff.
as the black stripes
ripple and dance.
Headlong into a momentous first dive ever! And the smile is as wide as the pool itself.
Aquatics at Pilot. Not just about sports and exercise, but concentration, coordination and confidence. And sometimes, itâ€™s about making a splash.
At one time, he needed a tutor. Now he is one. The time-honored tradition of the older and more experienced mentoring the younger. In a world full of books and papers, digital media and teacher interactions, sometimes the most meaningful learning moments happen
between student and student.
Whether teacher, counselor, specialist or fellow student, at Pilot, someone is always in your corner.
Last day at Pilot. Time to clean out the locker. So many memories. So much to look forward to.
A new school.

Today, she is ready.
