For the Week of December 7, 2015

Quickly Approaching

Coming back from Thanksgiving break always reminds me the new calendar year is just a few weeks away. Although the school year doesn't end until June, it is a reminder of how quickly the year is progressing. We are that much closer to the end of the year, but so much to accomplish. I am always impressed with how our students stay focused and continue to finish out the school year doing things the "Bronco Way!"
