Kimberly's Message

I hope you all had a great Spring Break! I know I enjoyed the time off with my family! Welcome back and please remember to be an advocate for your students. If you provide them with a loving and nurturing environment they will respond to you. Take time out to listen to what they have to say, acknowledge their concerns (even the made up ones), show them how to love, show them how to exercise patience and how to use nice words. If we expect them to behave appropriately and be prepared to work, we must do the same. I believe in these kids and I know they are capable of so much more than we see. Do you believe in them? Are do you just say you do? What do your words say? What does your body language say? Your words and actions must be aligned!

Shout Outs

Ms. Cheng volunteered 9.5 hours at Family U.

Ms. Martinez, Ms. Kutiev and Ms. Amador for supporting the Campos family during such a difficult time. Steven was so lucky to have Ms. Martinez and Ms. Kutiev as his teachers. They loved him as their own! Holmquist is lucky to have them also.
