Thank You for Being the Champions Your Students Needed This Year!!!

I can't believe the end of the year is here! Thank you for showing up for your students every day. I know you are exhausted - the end of the year can be trying and oh, so tiring. Remember, you have LITERALLY changed minds this year. You have taught students to read, to divide fractions, treat one another kindly. Whether they are able to say it or not, your students appreciate you.


I will miss you this summer. Have a great break! Relax and rejuvenate!!!
