2/ 15 - Winter Recess Begins


Making a

Dear MS Family,

Only a few days remaining before Winter Recess begins. I'm not sure where the time has gone, because I feel as if it was just Christmas. Before you know it, June will be here and we will be celebrating the many successes we had throughout the school year - one of those successes being helping a child realize his/her full potential.

Last week I shared my story about the teacher - a math teacher in fact - that helped me see that I could defy the odds, overcome my current circumstances and understand a subject matter that I found challenging. I ended that note with a request for your help with reaching a child that may have given up. Helping a child who tries is easy to do - loving a child who doesn't takes a WHOLE lot more. With two quarters behind us, there is still time to make a difference. With each word and each action - we can help a child believe!

Is there a child in your class that has given up? Has he/she left you wondering if he/she cares? Don't give up. That's the child that needs you the most! Who is it that you can help to see that he/she can?
