Greetings from Dr. Garcia
October 5, 2019
Our learner attribute for October is reflective. Now is a great time to encourage your scholar to reflect on first quarter. What has been learned? What growth has occurred? What are areas for improvement? Being reflective encourages us all to slow down and to think critically about our lives and the world around us.
I hope you have a wonderful weekend, and we will see your scholars on Monday!
