Where Does the Time Go?

How easy it is to get caught up in the day-to-day grind when suddenly you find there are just 10 weeks remaining in the school year.  We have approximately 50 days to prepare our students for next school year.  In those 50 days the checklist seems to get longer and longer.  Depending on the grade level we begin to think about all the various standards we still need to cover.  I have the privilege each day to see dedicated teachers pour their hearts into their children and come away asking, "How can I do more?"  I'm thankful for a school that gets it... teachers who understand what makes a difference... families who appreciate the work of their teachers... students who show up with a smile, ready to learn.  Let's make the most of those days!

  1. Wasn't it just September? I agree, where does the time go? I like your list of all the things you are thankful for. I'm sure the teachers are thankful for you.
