Greetings From Mrs. Baird!

Happy Day My Cullins Friends!!!

I missed you guys over Spring Break as I was off "Sharpening the Saw" in New York City!!!! I hope you all had a wonderful spring break. Jack and I tagged along with Makenzie and the RHS Choir for their school trip. I don't know how those chaperones keep up with the tight schedule those kids are on for trips!! We were just extras, did our own thing and served as a cash machine for Makenzie! We did lots of shopping, lots of eating, saw an Opera, and enjoyed the unique neighborhoods of the city. The best was the 9-11 Memorial Museum. Jack and I went to NYC for the first time in December after 9-11. It was very powerful, moving, and quite emotional to see all of what we lived through memorialized. All of the feelings of desperation came to life again as we saw videos, heard audio, it was an awesome experience.

Friends....... We have about 11 weeks of school left!!!! OMG!!! I cannot believe this time has gone by so fast. Keep doing the GREAT things that you do each and every day for your students!!

The Lighthouse Team will begin planning our Spring Leadership Night coming soon. This event will take place on May 14th. Share your ideas with a member of the Lighthouse Team. We will be asking for input and more assistance from you!!!

Make it a great week my friends!!! I am so happy to see the SUNSHINE and warmer weather coming our way!!
