THE STRENGTH OF THE WOLF IS ITS PACK
December 2, 2022
As a fitting topic for December, our SEL is focused on Giving and Generosity. You and I can look forward to helping children recognize how others give and we can describe generous acts. In a school community of over 440 children and staff, there will be many ways to identify giving and contributions. This impacts our overall generosity of spirit and friendship. I look forward to a magical season celebrating how our actions positively impact the lives of others!

A Message From The PTO...
A Message From PE
Emily Van Dril
Mrs. Van Dril: A good day at school is when the kids are excited to learn. I love hearing how excited the kids are for Empower, or when they share what they learned. A great day is when the students work together, collaborate, and share their excitement for learning.
If you could pass on any wisdom to your students, what would you share?
Mrs. Van Dril: If I could pass on any wisdom to my students, I would want them to believe in themselves and what they can accomplish. In Empower, we try never to give up, to do hard things, and that we can learn from our mistakes.
How do you spend your summer breaks?
Mrs. Van Dril: I usually spend my summer breaks spending time with family and friends. My husband and I love to adventure with our two dogs (Diesel and Dixie) going to different parks, forest preserves, and dog friendly businesses.
