Happy Holidays!!!!

I want to use this opportunity of the holiday season to wish all of our students and their families a happy and healthy winter break. On behalf of the entire staff at the Middle School I want to thank you for the privilege of working with your children. We are so very thankful for our supportive families and the remarkable children with whom we work every day. We love your children here and because of them we have the best jobs in the world.

The New Year is always an opportunity for us to reflect on how we're doing. My one word for 2016 is Relationships. We can talk initiatives and the plans that we make to achieve things… but at the end of the day, everything comes back to relationships. Maya Angelou said, 'I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.' For 2016 my goal is to reflect more on and devote greater energy to the relationships I have with everyone in my life...

How about you, what's your One Word for 2016?

See you next year!
