Week of March 11th

Big picture

As I sat and looked at the calendar this weekend, I realized, we are in busy season and the time of the year when the weeks are SO busy! When things get busy, it is easy to not be as well planned or not be as committed to supporting readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, thinkers, artists,etc in our classrrooms/school! Stay strong! Plan well and know that you are making a difference by growing thinkers. Every day matters!


23.5 days until Spring Break

13 days until the end of the 3rd quarter

47 .5 days until End of Grade Testing begins

55.5 days left in the academic year to GROW our students


DO NOT get stressed... own a relentless commitment to growing students! CONTINUE to make a difference everyday...no matter how many extra things are planned! Our students are fortunate to have such rockstars supporting their growth daily!
