From the Principal

 
'Backpack'
 
I carry with me the tools of learning in my 'backpack'-my pencil, my crayons, my notebook, maybe my feelings toward school, or my snack. I am a special person with a variety of ability. Will you notice me this year? Will you guide me, will you be there for me? Will I remember you for the rest of my life and tell my children how you inspired me? Will you accept me for who I am and teach me regardless of my situation, or skills? Maybe you can even learn to love me...because you know I will love you in spite of myself...remember, I will try, if you try with me, I will learn, if you learn with me......and we will both be better for it.......and I thank you!
