We are reminded to teach our kids to think intensely and critically. Mrs. Arnett's beautiful story reminded us that we are all unique. Virtual learning fatigue is real. But, I am really impressed with the grit and resilience I see each day in the virtual classrooms. We are a team! The Kindness Challenge week is a good reminder for us to be kind to each other and ourselves. We miss hearing your kids on campus, and be part of their endless curiosity. Please take part in the Kindness Challenge week activities, and send us lots of photos.
Proud to be a Comet!
