Happy Birthday, MaryEllen (5/12)
Happy Monday, Wilson Team!
On another note, I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate seeing and hearing about the awesome learning going on in your classrooms! From the integration of technology to the dynamic lessons on close reading, our students are extremely lucky to have teachers like you in their court!
As we begin to wind down the year, please take time to pause and reflect on the impact you have made in the lives of our students. I promise that you will not be disappointed in the growth they have made academically, socially, and behaviorally as I am impressed by these displays of growth daily!
So...Take a Deep Breath....Relax.....Smile......and be Proud of your Accomplishments!
