With only a little more than one month left in the 2016-2017 school year, students, parents and staff are beginning to see the ‘light at the end of the tunnel.’ We know summer break is just around the corner, and we can’t wait for the final bell to ring.

Over the next few weeks, there will be final exams, end-of-course, and end-of grade tests to take. There will be field days and awards ceremonies to attend. There will be study guides and final projects due. There will be final grades that need to be submitted and classrooms to pack up and clean out. With all that is going on, it’s important that we all stay as focused, dedicated and committed as we were back in September.
