"Inspiring Greatness in Tomorrow's Leaders!" 10-7-16

Think Win Win, Synergize and Yee-Haws!

Dear Staff,

Thank you for making our Student Success Day such a success; it is always extremely gratifying to see our entire school supporting our students through great in-class instruction, great use of our fabulous instructional aides, school interventions and grade-level interventions, double dosing through small group and one-on-one instruction, technology integration, great teaching strategies, and the list goes on and on!

It was awesome to see the great teamwork that each grade level is demonstrating to maximize student growth in all of our students. A very special thank you to Kristy for spending the day with us and already seeing students, Alice, Lindsay, and Theresa for checking in and being a constant support for our students.

Thanks again for all that you are doing, both individually and collectively to help students be their personal best!
