Week in Review
The Bradley band, orchestra, choir, and debate came to perform this morning for our 5th grade students. They entertained and inspired. Our own school choir also went today to perform at the San Antonio International Airport. What a privilege for our students to be highlighted publicly!
Our students also participated in Hour of Code this week. We appreciate all of the teachers who made this possible for students. Ask your child about their Coding experience this week.
It was another great week in the Forest. Have a wonderful weekend.
No after school tutoring or book clubs December 14-18. Will resume January 5th.

Habit of the Week: Habit 8 - Find Your Voice and Inspire Others to Find Theirs
Quote of the Week
“Every great dream begins with a dreamer. Always remember, you have within you the strength, the patience, and the passion to reach for the stars to change the world.” -Harriet Tubman
7 Habits Home Connection
When you align your passions and strengths, and find a specific need you’re driven to fill, you’ve found your voice. Sometimes that voice gets lost. Distractions, busy lifestyles, policies, evaluations, and mandates can overwhelm the passions and talents that fuel your voice. If you feel you have lost your voice and passion, it is not gone forever.
Albert Schweitzer, a German—and later French—philosopher, said, “In everyone’s life, at some time, our inner fire goes out. It is then burst into flame by an encounter with another human being. We should all be thankful for those people who rekindle the inner spirit.” We can find our voice again by interacting with others who have similar passions, strengths, and desires. And we can be the spark that rekindles another’s flame.

- The City of San Antonio will soon be installing No Parking Signs on both sides of Silver Spruce for the length of the campus. This No Parking Zone will be in effect during school zone hours only.
- A community member who lives on Silver Spruce had a vehicle parked in her driveway today blocking her in. She was unable to pull her vehicle out of her garage. Please respect our neighbors by NOT parking in driveways without the permission of the homeowner.
