On the Side of Hope!

Learners Today - Leaders Tomorrow!

Throughout the year, we have been saying, "On the Side of Hope" and "Learners Today - Leaders Tomorrow." I am asking you to reflect on these two phrases. Take a moment to celebrate how you help our Ponies to stay On the Side of Hope, and how you've created leaders for tomorrow.

As I was walking the halls, I observed several fifth graders helping younger Ponies and reading to them. Our Rally Leaders have become a symbol for some of our future fifth graders. The smiles that I see on your students' faces as they are walking on their way to you tells it all. It has been hard without a doubt, but everything you did this year made a difference for our ponies. Remember, if not you then who will keep them On the Side of Hope?

As the school year draws to a close, Lewisville Elementary teachers are still creating engaging and relevant lessons. You are still making every moment count, and still making a difference in the lives of our students.

Let's finish strong. On the Side of Hope, we can continue teaching our leaders of tomorrow!

Enjoy Jeans for the week
