"Teaching is more than imparting knowledge, it is inspiring change. Learning is more than absorbing facts, it is acquiring understanding. "-William Arthur Ward
I hope that each of you had a wonderful and restful break and that you are fully energized. With about 2 more months of school remaining, let's continue to make sure that we are maximizing the learning opportunities for all of our students. Upon our return we will kick off our state testing, please stress to the students the importance of coming to school everyday and let's motivate each of them to do their best...

Incentives will be based on the following...

I am asking that we all work together to make sure this is a success for the students. I will need one teacher per grade level to stay with the kids that will not participate and two teachers to monitor the students during the activities. If you have a team of four you can split two and two.
