Welcome back Gilbert Giraffes!!! I hope you had a safe and adventurous Summer vacation. I have already begun classroom lessons. I'm excited to continue our "Character Counts" curriculum with some new incentives and activities. I see you out there working hard to earn those character coins. The following topics will be featured throughout the year: teamwork, respect, organization, appreciation, careers/college, friendship, problem-solving, leadership, and summer safety. Please remember, I am here to help. Stop by my office to say, "Hello!". It's going to be a great year.
