Week of April 11, 2016 - B Week

The End in Sight

Big image

No article this week. Just a gratitude for all you've accomplished so far. And an intention for the next 9 weeks - to finish as strongly as we began.

The fourth quarter of any game can be the most challenging, but it will make the difference in how we achieve our goals. Distractions will be greater, the schedule will get thrown off, and students may get tired, but it will also be full of fun activities, parent involvement, and a great opportunity to see displays of the learning from the year. It will be rewarding and inspiring.

I'm looking forward to the challenge - and I know you are too.

Thanks for all you do!
