Week of May 16

The Final Countdown!

Everyone's favorite bulletin board is up next to Room 108, and that can only mean that the end of the school year is quickly approaching. Although we are all looking forward to the opportunity to recharge, it is important to keep in mind that our students are still counting on us. I read a great blog post this weekend that puts into perspective what our kids deserve for the end of the school year. Check out the link below, and follow the movement (which goes well beyond the last weeks of school) on Twitter at #kidsdeserveit.

Have a fantastic week!
