Glows and Grows

Glows: Great first week back. It was a busy week and I appreciate you jumping right back in. Many thanks to Mr. Suarez for covering for me today and to the 4th and 5th grade teachers who assisted at the honor roll assembly. I actually received a lot of positive feedback from parents about how respectful the students were.


Grows: Sometimes it is hard to maintain engagement as we near the final 9 weeks. How do you plan for waning student interest? How do you maintain your positive attitude as we hit the instructional wall that is common place in the spring?
