A great week without any disruptions! Students have been awesome, as usual, and are hard at work. Thank you for all the support you give to your kids and to me. Your support truly makes my job easier and I want each of you to know I appreciate your willingness to go the extra mile for your child. Every minute that you spend helping them with their reading, practicing math with them, researching a topic of interest online or at the library, practicing the spelling words or learning new words, etc., are precious priceless minutes that not only strengthens the bond between you and your child, but also instills in them a love for learning that will rip life-long benefits.
