Grit = Courage and resolve; strength of character.
It has been 30 days since we played Schools Out for Summer! It always amazes me how this time of year begins to zip along so quickly. As I reflect on student progress during the 2015-2016 school year, GRIT describes it. I am so proud of each one of our students and the continued effort they demonstrated to maintain a positive attitude when learning new concepts that were challenging. Our students supported each other in taking risks with their learning and applied an alternative definition to the word fail = Forever Acquiring Important Lessons.

Enjoy these beautiful days of summer! As I plan for the 2016-2017 school year, I look forward to seeing the smiling faces of our Hedges students in just 54 days!
