A good day!

Today was our student-led conference day. It was fantastic! The student's really enjoyed having time with their parents to show what they have been learning in all of their subjects - I could see their little eyes brighten with  each bit of praise. It was a great day to celebrate learning success and a nice change from the report-based conferences. 

The best part of the day? It's T-minus eight hours until we get on a flight to Portugal! Hurray for spring break!

Take care, everyone. I'll be back with photos to share!
