Monday Memo

September 23, 2014

Happy Monday!

Wow! What an amazing day yesterday! The team here at Halstead never ceases to amaze me. I was so proud of you all as I walked around yesterday and people outside of our school could see the things Tricia and I see on a daily basis. Each of you should be proud of yourselves. I encourage you all to continue to stretch yourselves and think like there is no box!


"It is ok to be where you are; it is NOT ok to stay there!"
