A Principal's Perspective
I was singing to myself while getting ready to come to school this morning. Know what song? The song from the 4th grade musical, I'm Tired! Not only is it a catchy song, but just about true on the last day before the holidays. I know that you are tired too from all of the planning, organization and yes, teaching that happens at the end of the semester and beginning of the holiday season. Thank you for all of your heart, soul and passion for your students this fall semester! I wish for you a well deserved break of rest, fun and full of memories with friends and family as you enjoy the holidays.
