Five More Days!

Only 5 more days until the Thanksgiving Holidays and some much needed rest. It will be a very full week with activities like the Turkey Tango, Corn Day, Cranberry Thanksgiving, and much, much more.

In this season of THANKS and GIVING, take time to count your blessings and give of yourself to someone in need. I am thankful for the opportunity to be the principal of the most amazing school in the city with an incredible group of people who go "all out" for our kids and our community. I'm also blessed with an incredible husband and three amazing sons who love me, support me, and sometimes they even fix dinner and clean house! I'm also thankful for good health, and that I am fortunate enough to I have everything I need, AND much of what I want. What are you thankful for?

I'd love to hear your feedback. You can choose for your responses to be anonymous. It's quick-I promise!
