Thoughts for the Week

The last week of the first quarter. Hard to believe the time has gone so fast. So much has happened this quarter for us to be proud of. We have set the tone for a great year, the students are learning, and are engaged int he classrooms. We will continue our journey to making Yancey a great school.

This Thursday will be genius hour, and there will be no faculty meeting next Thursday. Please use the time to catch up on things that you may need more time for.

Have a great week, and let me know if you need anything,
