    I have been spending quite a bit of time testing as we near the end of the 2nd trimester and I am really pleased to see how much the kids have grown this year!  Thank you for your continued support at home especially with the homework I’ve been sending home.  Your help is really appreciated.


    On another note, many of you know that my son succeeded to win at the Oregon state wrestling tournament making him the first male wrester to win state twice and the first to have an undefeated season as an HRV wrestler.  I am very proud of his hard work and dedication. On Thursday, he came in to meet the kids. He talked to the kids about the importance of working hard and to never give up.  Afterwards they had an opportunity to take pictures with him.  Many of the kids wanted to test his strength so they asked to be picked up while I took their picture.  It was fun to have him come in.

    Take Home Folders ~ Thank you for your support on making sure the take home folders make it back to school daily, I really appreciate it!!  Please check it daily for any homework your child needs to work on or to see what your child has done in school.  It is so important that you take the time do this.  The simple act of looking at what your child is doing in school and having conversations with them about it lets your child know that what they are doing is important.
