It has been a FANTASTIC year for the students and I. I really hope they enjoyed this year, and are committed to being life-long learners who enjoy their journey of learning. I hope they always remember my class motto: MISTAKES ARE OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEARNING!
Never give up, and always do your best! It IS choice, and not chance that determines your destiny. Make GOOD choices for you (ones that make you GROW), and have a terrific and safe summer!!!!
Below is a note from one of our Superintendents about a FREE summer learning program that students can do over the summer to help consolidate skills learned, and learn some extra things that will help them succeed in their future elementary years:
