The Moment We Have Waited For

"Ladies and gents, this is the moment you've waited for!" This week is the MOMENT for 3rd and 4th grade! This is the time for our kiddos to SHOW their GREATNESS!!!


I want to say that I am sad I missed the test bash, but I am so PROUD of all of you! Once again, you are proving that you can lead! I had to leave campus unexpectedly to help Mrs. Lane with one of our sweet 2nd graders. I must say that I had no worries, because I knew all of you had it under control. Keep doing great things for our Eastside kids! Your actions do not go unnoticed. Remember, those kids need your best for the rest of this year. For some of our kids, they will have no interaction with books through the summer and will experience the summer slide. We must capitalize on these days we have them to make sure we grow them as much as possible prior to summer! Your best looks like you interacting with kids in small group and whole group! IT DOES NOT LOOK LIKE STUDENTS ON CHROMEBOOKS AND YOU SITTING AT YOUR DESK! I will be having individual conversations from now until the end of the year for anyone that does not understand this.
