Reflect, Review, and Replenish!

Now that the second marking period has come to an end, it is the perfect time to reflect, redirect, and resupply! We are thrilled with the progress we have seen so far this year. Your children are successfully navigating their way through their 8th grade year and we know we have you to thank for that support and guidance at home.

Navigator students began the year with clear academic and personal goals. Now that we are half way through the school year, it is common to feel the weight of the winter doldrums. To remain on the path to success, we are asking that you review with your children their goals for the year. Perhaps you can even have a conversation identifying what behaviors have led to their success thus far.

In addition to refocusing, many students’ supplies need replenishing. Please take a moment to look through those binders, take stock of what is needed, and purchase necessary items (pencils, pens, erasers).

This flu season has been especially rough for us all and we are in desperate need of tissues for the team classrooms. Please send your donation in with your child to Mrs. Gamble in Room 333.

As always, we appreciate your support. Here’s to a great second half!
