Goodbye January!

The groundhog saw his shadow! Six more weeks of winter? NO! I often call this time of year the "Long Haul." This is by far the most difficult stretch of time for all our students (and staff) We have few breaks and a great deal to get done by may and Lots of testing. Hang in there! Everyone will make it through. January is down and our hours of daylight grow just a little longer each day!
