It's All Good

Don't you love that phrase? Even with the snow days, delays and interrupted schedules, the energy and activity of this week reminded me that "it's all good." Our students were doing great things this week in class as they delved into content, demonstrated acts of kindness, celebrated one another's recognition, and empathized with the main character from the book Wonder. In case you were wondering, I LOVE my job! I LOVE working with a committed and caring staff! I LOVE working with parents, guardians, and mentors who work with us to meet the needs of students and recognize our efforts to "foster a sense of community that enriches the experience of middle school students by building relationships among students, staff, families and the community." I continue to thank you for your support and feedback.
