"Grow beyond our walls"

Update for April 27 – May 1

We had an amazing celebration this week that highlighted a project that has brought the school community together over the past 10 years.  Take a look at some of the pictures from the event:

!function(d,s,id){var js,fjs=d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0],p=/^http:/.test(d.location)?’http’:’https’;if(!d.getElementById(id)){js=d.createElement(s);js.id=id;js.src=p+”://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js”;fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js,fjs);}}(document,”script”,”twitter-wjs”);

Becky reaffirmed for me that we can’t let our job description limit what is possible.  Growing beyond our walls and connecting our passion to the school’s mission is what innovative educators, including Becky, do.  And in turn it helps to create a truly innovative learning space.

Having what George Couros calls an “innovator’s mindset” will help us continue to learn and grow as professionals and will also help us continue to provide kids with authentic learning experiences that will better position them for success in the future.

Have a GREAT week!
