Happy New Year!
I hope you all had a great two weeks off. I know it's hard to be back, but we are and I'm looking forward to a great semester.
I hope you start this semester off like you did to begin the school year with the thought process of instilling wonder in your students. Continue to concentrate on ways to create risk-taking in your own instruction along with the ways your students learn. We continue to have an opportunity to develop young minds and encourage our students to be positive citizens in the world. We are in a great place with some outstanding students and we need to continue to find ways to provide them an exciting and safe environment to learn.
Thanks again for being the forward-thinkers you are and I do look forward to being a part of the achievements our students will experience this next semester.

Rice's Bragging and Reflection Form
There are four "announcements" placed in the classroom which is to be used to brag on yourself, a teacher, or even a student. If you include something about someone, please let them know, so they can see the information. Something to try out as far as giving props and recognition to those who deserve it. The class code is: k37hjt
