important step in your lives, and a significant day on our school calendar, as
we recognize publicly your successes.
is a day of celebration. You are being celebrated for your excellence in
performance in your first semester of middle school; in sports, in academics,
and in extra curricular activities.We

our lives.You are on the brink of the
paths you will take on your road in life.
am amazed by all of you this year.In
one semester, I have watched you grow, change, and embrace middle school.As you finish your school year, remember how
important it is to high five a friend in the hallway, help a stranger open his
or her locker, to ask a teacher how they are doing today, help a friend
understand a math problem, and how bright the light is shining on your
future.Remember, you are the creator of
what you will be.
We did a lot of cleaning today, including steam cleaning all the carpets upstairs, putting the Christmas tree away, and cleaning out Hot Wheels cars. We bagged up four garbage bags and took them to the Goochland Clothes Closet for those who are less fortunate. We also enjoyed some time at the Goochland YMCA swimming around!
