Great day!

Today we had our Back to School Fair at Four Peaks! It was such a great day! I spent the morning in my classroom welcoming our new group of 6th graders. I had the chance to meet a bunch of new kids as well as see some familiar faces! After seeing the kids, I am even more excited for this year!

My great team as well as our principal and counselor spent some time with our new group of 6th graders at our first ever Rocky’s Leadership Training. We are calling our 6th grade community ‘The CREW’ (creative, responsible, energetic, workers). We talked about our goals and expectations for the year as well as had some time to learn about some new ways to help us stayed focused and positive. I was so happy to see that the students were receptive and as excited as we are! I can’t wait to start working with them this year!

Are you as excited about the start of the 2013-2014 school year as we are?
