As we settle back to school, I hope the positive feelings that were hopefully part of your holiday season continue. I ask each of us to take care of each other and look out for the best interests of our students. Our school is built on helping students become their own best advocate, to understand their own learning challenges, and to approach a problem in a methodical way so that we can find a solution.  Everyone has New Year’s resolutions at some level.   I have pledged to myself to help our school capture what is good about what we do, clarify those areas that need further study or direction, organize our daily actions the best we can, reflect upon how we can help the students in our care, and engage with our parents in discussions in substantiating our mission and purpose. I hope each one of you has set some objectives. Here is to a wonderful 2018.
