Joyful Lerners, Skillfull Educators, and Enriching Classrooms

Today was a great day for me as a school leader. I was in many classrooms today and I have to say that I was blown away at the level of learning the students are engaged in school wide. Our teachers go above and beyond to ensure our students are given every opportunity to learn and grow. After my visits to the classrooms I reflected on my experience today and I cannot say enough how fortunate I am and the kids are to have such a loving and academically rigorous educational program at Clifford. Thank you for trusting us with your children and allowing us to be a partner in your child's education. Thank you teachers for being so committed and passionate about your role in the lives of the students and families. I am sharing some pictures from my visits today.

Have a wonderful weekend!
