We're just a couple of weeks away from starting school!

The beginning of school is just around the corner. Teachers return on Monday, August 22 and students come back for a half day on Friday, August 26. Starting the next Monday, August 24 we'll get into the new school at full throttle!

I'm spending some time this week planning for a great year. I've spent a good part of the summer break working with other teachers to discover how we can make this coming year exciting and fruitful. I'm really looking forward to helping my students have a great, productive year.

One of the teachers I worked with found this very interesting video. If you get a chance, take a look at it. If you want to earn some extra credit points, watch the video. Then, write a short reflection in Google Docs about what you think of the video and how it might relate to the coming school year. I'm not looking for anything special, just what your thoughts are about the video.

We are going to have an absolutely GREAT year. I can't wait to see you all again.

Thanks to Mr. Miller for this motivating video:
