The Countdown

Mr. Glende started "the countdown" on the marquis shortly after the 2007-08 school year came to an end. He has been updating it every weekday throughout the summer. We gotten mixed reviews on the countdown. My philosophy on countdowns is that we countdown to good things, like the beginning of summer or the new year. As educators we see that start of the school year as a good thing, this is an opportunity to continue our work with students and to help students increase their academic achievement. At the posting of this blog there is less than one month until the start of school and I am looking forward to having a school full of students and staff.
