Teacher Advisory Notes

Pep Talk

Ms. Robinson and I met with the entire 3rd grade to let them know again we BELIEVE in them and we LOVE them!!! The message will remain consistent from us to our STAR students...that each of YOU are a gift and too Special not to TRY YOUR VERY BEST everyday!!! We also emphasized great players/students and teams/classes PRACTICE better than other teams/classes which makes the GAME/TEST much easier!!!

We feel the same about South Staff! Love ya Mean It!!!

Enjoy the video...3rd Grade Pep Talk

As I embark on Summative Evaluations here is something I truly believe so you will be noticing a theme...
