New Year's Message from Ms. Neill

Welcome,

Beginning a New Year brings excitement with an opportunity to start over. We are able to set goals and strive towards being the best we can be for our family and community. I trust you enjoyed your Holiday break and are ready for a fantastic New Year at Briar Vista. We will start this month with many meetings in order to keep you informed with an instructional path we will focus on as we prepare for Georgia Milestones. Testing is important, but daily instruction will be the key to successful outcomes. I encourage you to participate in our meetings that will help you with promoting the goals and academic expectations for our children. Together with your support, our teachers and community, we will reap the benefits of great success. Be sure to read the article: "Nine Things Successful People do Differently" by Heidi Grant Halvorson from the Harvard Business Review.

I am truly grateful to work with our teachers, parents, and students towards building a strong community. Thank you all for your support, may you have a wonderful start for the 2016 year in health, wealth and joy!!!

Cammie Neill
