A huge shout out to the specials team for putting together a terrific Field Day! Our students had a fabulous time! I hope everyone had an opportunity to rest and recover this weekend.

Ms. Burton, we had a fun time celebrating you at the Teacher of the Year Gala last week!

Congratulations to Mrs. Gillmore for winning the Clean Sweep Award! If you haven't had a chance to see her trophy, please stop by her room and check it out.

We are at the final push, my fine friends. Your "to-do" list is unending, you need several more hours a day to get everything done, and you're tired. Let me just encourage you to remember why you got into education in the first place. For the kids! Pause for a moment and take a look at them. Think about where they were at the beginning of the year and compare that to where they are now. Celebrate their successes - their growth academically, socially, and emotionally. You know these children. You matter to them. You have made an impact on their lives. Enjoy your last few days with them and finish the year strong.
