So Close But Yet So Far Away
As the end of the 2012-13 academic year quickly approaches, there is yet so much work to be done. While we still face the duties of tabulating grades, lesson plans, quality teaching, leading, and learning, collaborating, parent notifications and conferences, end of year events, programs and celebrations, and promoting safe and inviting school climates, it may appear that we are so far away from the end. However, with just weeks of school remaining, it is important to maximize each opportunity every day. With the dedication and commitment of such a quality staff throughout our district and the support of our community, I am confident that each student will be able to experience a strong finish to a busy, instructive academic year. Thanks to each of you for your devotion to our students.
