Welcome to Summer!

Welcome to summer. Phew – we made it! Another year in the bag – and a truly great one at that. As Randy and I retreat to our offices to “wrap” the 2013/14 school year, we find ourselves reflecting on what has come to pass – and dreaming about the possibilities for the future.

 

First – we’d both like to genuinely thank everyone who had a hand in getting us this far. From our families rooting us on from the sidelines, to our fantastic (and dedicated) parent-coordinators – to the school admin (where would we be without your support?) as well as our amazing students, and of course, our team of talented instructors. We could not do what we do without you – and we take our hats off to all of you. Thank you.

Next – I’d like to take a moment to pat ourselves on the back – we’ve come a long way baby! From the very early days of this company to today, we’ve grown a lot. Today we have over 40 instructors in over 30 schools, running close to 100 programs per term … and we’re growing! Not only that – we’ve become a company with a heart – and we want to make a difference. You’ll see a lot more charity work and “giving back” in the coming years, which makes us so very happy. We  believe in helping communities grow and thrive from the ground up – and there’s no better place to affect that change than in schools. Three cheers for all the good we can do – and the fun we can have along the way!

 

Finally – we see BIG things in our future. Sometimes we get a little ahead of ourselves – but hey … we’re entrepreneurial dreamers … what else is new!? We’ve got big plans for our little company and we can’t wait to see our “baby” grow and mature into the thriving “adult” it can be. We’ll be working hard over the summer – planning, organizing, brainstorming and researching… We can’t show you what is “behind the curtain” just yet – but I promise – we’ll show you the tricks up our sleeves before long. Right now it feels a bit like a swirling vortex of ideas, pouring from our brains over coffee every morning – but before long we’ll have focused in on concrete ideas to make our company stronger and to bring even better, more engaging, and more Explorative programming to our many school-communities.

So – with that, we hope everyone has a happy, healthy summer Exploring the world around them, and we look forward to seeing you all in the fall. We’ve put together this little video to reflect on, and smile about all that has come to pass so far — we hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

Take care all!

Liz and Randy – your faithful Explore It! Directors.
