We've been busy collecting good news...
1. Overheard in the hallway just after an AP exam (last week): (said to a student who was crying) "Girl, you are not your grade! GIRL. You are NOT YOUR GRADE!"
I know it was a simple little statement, but if you've ever been in school at any level, you know how it feels to feel like you're almost at the end, but you're terrified that you didn't make the grade you were hoping for. It means the world to get encouragement, but you could tell it was especially important to the girl who was on the receiving end to hear it from a PEER. They were laughing as they continued on to class.
2. A couple of weeks ago, the drumline led us in celebrating our Special Olympians-- we have some amazing students in this school!!
Look around you-- there are amazing things happening all the time!
