A chance to meet new students.
A chance to try new ideas.
A chance to inspire the next generation.
I've had many "first days of school" and this one was super! Super students, super fun ideas, and a staff of superhero teachers that are all committed to providing a chance for students to learn and discover their "superpowers."

We finished our week of new beginnings by celebrating the arrival of a brand-new box of books. I've told my students a little bit about the project we're going to be starting soon, and they were happy to help me open up the box and preview the books! The books are for a Kindness project we'll be doing with the story, "Lead with your Heart" and its author, Jena Ball. The set of books were a part of a Donors Choose project and were generously paid for by two donors: a former 4th grade student's parent, and a current colleague's relative. We're so excited to read this year and participate in some difference-making projects.
