Welcome back! I hope you all had a great spring break. It's now time to get back to work and believe it or not we are almost at the end of the school year. It is very important that you come back ready to work hard and well. I want you to finish strongly. You've been doing well. Keep up the good work.
"Start by doing what's necessary, then what's possible, and suddenly you are doing the impossible."
St. Francis of Assisi
