Dreams matter

"Martin Luther King had a dream that led to a movement of equality. Steve Jobs dreamed of changing the way we view technology. Edison dreamed of the light bulb, and Lincoln dreamed he could use his influence to end slavery … Dreams matter.

Do you have a dream? Let me remind you that having a dream is not enough. If you intend to reach it you must take a step toward it." Gravitt, Randy.

Safety and Security

Please continue to remind your own children (if they are here with you) and your students from your classroom to never open a door for an adult. Likewise, if you see an adult (or a visitor) in the building without a name tag, please escort him/her to the front office! As you know, we can never be too careful!
