Dear Quest families and friends,
I am happy to report that today, June 12th, the school owns 1150 Boston Neck Road, Narragansett. This six acre pristine property, wonderfully wooded and a mere walk down a path to an adjacent city park, will serve as the anchor to our new building and our place called home.
Seven years ago this month Quest began the journey to our permanent home. A group of visionary parents, friends, and staff have worked tirelessly with patience, persistence and perseverance to arrive today, down the long and winding road to our permanent home.
Lao Tzu said: “A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
Twenty-six centuries have passed since Lao-tzu said this; and it feels like our project has lasted as long!!!
We have learned that the first step is as much about faith in the future as it is about mobility. With those first steps we learned to trust in ourselves and our vision. Along the way we learned the implacable truth of gravity, and that the only antidote to falling down is getting up again. We have dusted ourselves off and started again so many times.
Today, we have learned that over the course of a journey we will take many steps and with each of those steps we relearn the lessons already taught. The truest measure of success is not the achievement, it is the willingness to never give up for a goal worthwhile.
