We Believe...

Children are our most precious commodity and the holders of our future. To see them reach their full potential - we commit to our continuous learning and the learning of our students so that each learning activity is engaging, culturally responsive, and prepares them for their futures.

Educating Our Children...

Dear MS Family,

In approximately two weeks, the NYS assessment whirlwind will begin. The way that we approach this time of year will have a direct impact on the way our children respond. Walt Disney once said, "Our greatest natural resource is in the minds of our children." As their role models, we are able to help them see that their experiences in our classrooms are preparing them for life - not a test. How we prepare them for their futures, not ours, is what will help them reach their goals.

Happy Easter to all who celebrate! In the upcoming weeks, we'll have a chance to spend quality time with those closest to us. Use that time to help others to see something ordinary in an extraordinary way. Learning happens when one is shown to look at something differently than he/she looked at it before.

In this week's "Must See " video, Kid President urges us to celebrate children. Although he's getting a little older, he's maintaining his adorable personality. You'll love what he shares around celebrating children and all that they do - about "making the world awesome for kids." As we think about helping our children see ordinary things in extraordinary ways - let's continue to make this #Yearofthekid! He encourages all of us to make every conversation about the next generation. So how will we help write the rest of this story...
