This current school year has seen growth and has addressed it by using modular classrooms, which is an adequate short term solution. However, if student numbers stay high and even continue to increase, more new schools may need to be built. The true test to retain this level-headed "happiness" is to manage the influx of wealth and growth by looking for ways to improve infrastruc- ture and services and positively impact the area so that when the boom is over and the smoke clears, there is a beneficial outcome decades later. I can't help but be reminded of one of my favorite songs on "Happi- ness" from the musical Wicked, which builds on this concept that "not every step or turn on the journey is planned or anticipated," but the overall outcome can be your own "happily ever after." ■ Robyn Erlenbush is a third generation Montanan who lives in Bozeman.

Erlenbush can be reached at Thank Goodness Music & Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz That's why I couldn't be happier No, I couldn't be happier Though it is, I admit The tiniest bit Unlike I anticipated But I couldn't be happier Simply couldn't be happier 'Cause getting your dreams It's strange, but it seems A little - well - complicated There's a kind of a sort of a cost There's a couple of things get: lost There are bridges you cross You didn't know you crossed Until you've crossed And if that joy, that thrill Doesn't thrill you like you think it will Because happy is what happens When all your dreams come true Well, isn't it? Happy is what happens When your dreams come true!
