Welcome Back! I had a very restful break, with books, chocolate, and lots of coffee. Thank you parents for all the wonderful and thoughtful gifts. I really appreciate them. We have a rather busy week back. We are finishing our Explorer Reports and we have a group from APEX (emails will follow with more information) that will meet with us every day. Students will love the engagement and energy that this team brings to our school. Next week, we will have the APEX Fun Run. Our whole class will be walking or running for this event. Next week, is a four day week with Student - Led Conferences on Tuesday and Wednesday. If you have not already signed up on the Sign Up Genius please contact me. I will make sure to fit you in at a time that is convenient to you.
