• Summer Break!!! Griffins, thank you for making this year an exciting year for me.  I saw so many of you grow and blossom into mature adolescents.  Take time to fill your summer with laughter and smiles.  Remember, learning does not stop over the summer.  Do not forget to keep practicing the skills that you learned this past year, as well as complete your summer reading packet.  This summer I will focus on instructional strategies to increase student engagement.  Be your best self and have a wonderful summer!!!
