In Remembrance!

As we remember the men, women, and children who perished on 9/11, what are ways you can show your remembrance?

Former president Barack Obama once stated, “Even the smallest act of service, the simplest act of kindness, is a way to honor those we have lost, a way to reclaim that spirit of unity that followed 9/11.” I challenge you to go out and help someone…anyone.

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

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.
