And it All Comes to a Close

It's crazy to me, as I sit here, knowing this is the last staff blog post that I'll write for the 2015-2016 school year.

I am so proud of the work that everyone has done this year.  I really feel like we transformed a campus and changed lives.  We brought joy, excitement, and love into this year.  And it was noticed and felt by everyone who walked through those doors.

I challenge you to take a few moments to reflect this year.  Think of all the things that went right.  Think of where your kids were at the beginning of the year and where they are now.  Remember them for their laughs, hugs, touching moments.  Think about the trials you faced this year and how you persevered.  Think of the others from around the country who came and gave up their time for free because they believed that strongly in what you were trying to accomplish in little old Navasota.

Stand with your head held high with all the work put in this year.  We are by no means a perfect school, but we're growing.  We're learning.  And we have a hunger to keep getting better.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you for everything you've done this year.  This has been probably the best year of my career yet, and that is because of you.  Because of this team.  I can't wait to see what we all do next!

We've got 5 days left to make a difference.  Let's take advantage of every opportunity.

End of Year Awards

PreK and Kinder will have already done their End of Year Awards by Friday.

All other grades will do their awards in class (except for 5th).  You were told your class times, but they're also on the Webb Google Calendar.

Every child should receive an award.  Be creative.  If you need help let us know.

3rd-5th Grade teachers need to see me at some point on Monday for a special Presidential Award we were given to give out to some students.

Kids Deserve It


Rockstar Educators

Nina Salazar - Nina is our PE IA.  Nina has a great personality and is so fun to be around.  Nina cares about those kids so deeply and is always willing to step into whatever role I need her to.  Even with her health setbacks this year, Nina has been a great asset to our team and someone who I am thankful to have the opportunity to work with.

Theresa Sanders - Theresa is our Life Skills 1 IA.  Theresa has so much patience and love.  She is also someone who isn't done learning. I've watched her attend EdCamps and more.  Theresa has a heart for some of our most underserved kids and she is someone we can't do without here on our campus. I am thankful Theresa is here with us!

We're almost there guys!  We are in the home stretch.  Let's bring our best this week and end this year with a bang!
