why you're doing it in the first place.

We are in the final stretch with four weeks to go! We have overcome some big obstacles this school year. We have overcome these challenges because we are100% for our students! It feels like we have hit a Grand Slam and that is because we have! Let's run the bases and celebrate! Let’s commit to finishing what we started with the same enthusiasm and energy! #finishstrong

And Happy Mother's Day to all of our moms! 🌼
