Every student/teacher knows what the goal is and focuses/talks about practicing for the big game! We celebrate our hard work and practice by celebrating throughout the school year! We work as team in getting students a foundational academic vocabulary! I’m asking that we become a P – 12 team this year. Teamwork is the key to reaching the next level!
