Staff Shout Outs
We had so many visitors this week and they all had such positive things to say about the direction we are headed as a campus. As we continue to grow and learn, we hone our craft and in turn students gain a greater knowledge and understanding of the content.
I said to you once before and it rings true each and every day...these students will have this day only once and they deserve the very best of you!!!! We came here to do great things this year and with this mindset...we will!!!
On those tough days remember, they are a kid, they are trying to communicate an unmet need, and they deserve to be loved!!! You can make the choice to respond in love and change their world!
Who of you will be World Changers this year?
