Doing What you do BEST! WE all have a Part in this....

I want to thank everyone for your constant professionalism all week long. Each of you dove right in this week- from ensuring security/lunch/ morning procedures are followed, to referring students to I &RS/ 504's, preparing detailed lesson plans and analyzing student data and collaborating with colleagues and responding to immediate concerns... The list never ends! So, thank you for doing what you do BEST!!!
