A teacher affects eternity; he can never tell where his influence stops." --Henry Brooks Adams
Commit to Excellence
What a way to end the school year! Thursday's events were extremely scary and emotionally draining. The responsibility of keeping everyone safe was clear and present on Thursday. I could not have been more proud of everyone as you stayed calm, consoled little ones (and big ones) who were frightened and did your very best to keep all safe. As unprecedented events unfolded you were courageous and calm! Thank you for being "excellent" no matter what you are faced with.
I hope you were able to relax and enjoy the 4 day weekend. Incase you have not heard, we will have school on Friday the 3rd as our makeup day. We will plan to have our field day outside or possibly inside if it rains. Do all you can to talk up this school day as we want as many students to attend as possible.
Remember to keep routines and procedures in place as much as possible. Keep kids engaged for every minute. You know what they say about idle hands!!!
Believe in yourselves! Believe in your kids! I believe in you!
What a wonderful GT Expo! Thank you to teachers for all of your efforts in preparing your kids for this event. Mrs. Bryant has agreed to be Henderson's GT representative. I am very excited to see Henderson's GT program grow with Mrs. Bryant's help and guidance!
You all rocked on Thursday! Thank you for keeping kids safe and calm on Thursday.
