March Madness

As we close out March and open the door to a busy April and May, it may seem like March Madness should be called "April/ May Madness". If you watched the brackets play out, you would know that it was not without surprises, shut outs, and super plays! As you coordinate and organize your "testing brackets", you may be thinking what surprises could occur. I realize there is much to accomplish, but I also know that each of you have planned for these two months since July. Your focus has been on ensuring quality instruction and student achievement. You and your teachers hard work will be reflected in what your students have learned! Your school has made it to the finals! Now, finish strong and WIN!

Have a great week of learning!
