However this is just day 1 of 175. The trick is to sustain this energy over the long haul. Easier said than done, but it is something we should all strive for. We as educators want this to be a place where students are excited to come to. While this is a little hard on one those two tests, pop quiz, and middle of winter days, it still is our goal.
I have high hopes and goals for this year and I have encouraged our students and staff to do the same. We may not reach all of them but we sure are going to have a great time trying.
Best wishes to all of our students and staff as we embark on the 2013-14 school year. As I was reminded by all of the smiling faces today...this is a great place to live and work!
