Fall Fun

PRINTER FRIENDLY VERSION

 10/11/21

 

No arguments here to the benefits of three day weekends.  The weather certainly supported continued outdoor activity and seasonal festivities. I hope you had a full and relaxing weekend.

 

As with anything, there is always a counter balance and in this case, as it is with every three day weekend,  it is the shortened four day week ahead. Though lessened by one day of school this does not exactly equal to prescribed course work.  Time and work management are essential life skills for successful outcomes. Students are encouraged to make active use of their FLEX blocks for work completion and accessing teachers for any required support.  Education is not passive, it’s active..go get it!

 

Here’s to a good week...go get it!  Go Spartans
