Welcome Back!

As you venture into the unknown of your new grade, remember to have courage!

Courage doesn’t always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying I will try again tomorrow. – Mary Anne Radmacher

Happy Valentine’s Day

Hold Fast To Dreams!

Dreams

Hold fast to dreams 
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

Langston Hughes, 1902 - 1967

Stumble….Fall….Keep Moving!!

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
