Principal's Point to Ponder


You inspire me! When I think about how well our first 9 days of school have gone, I am inspired. You put in extra work over our summer planning days. You have created engaging, rigorous, integrated units that will challenge our students to go beyond their normal limits of thinking and performance. You have embraced the notion that we as a staff control the culture of our school. You have transformed your classrooms into visually appealing spaces for learning. You are working through the new lesson plan format and feedback procedures with thought and perseverance. You have ensured that your students know the cafeteria expectations as you prepare to begin duty free lunch this week. You all have accomplished a lot in 9 days and we've only just begun! Nine days in and, yes, I am already tired, but when I think about the great group of educators who come into the doors of Statesville Road every day to serve our students, I am energized and proud to partner with you in the transformation that is taking place. Thanks for all you do!
