the Winskill Weekly
"Determined people working together can achieve anything."
This made me think of Paul Gasser's message last week...

#FistBumps to all of the staff who participated in the teacher session held after school. While many of us have seen him before, there seems to always be a new situation or issue that his insight helps to shed new light upon.
#HighFives to the students in Mrs. Moefu's classroom for their outstanding leadership each morning with the saying of the Pledge of Allegiance!
Major #HighFives and #FistBumps to Kim, Jody, Laurie, Tracy, and Niki for holding down the fort last week while I was attending the SLATE conference that I had no idea that things were a bit nutty back here.
