Elementary school represents the best atmosphere that I know, where children have an opportunity to learn by trying and succeeding and by trying and failing. I am so grateful to be surrounded by educators who strive for success every day but know the value of failure. When students experience that failure we say, “GREAT!” Our smiles come out, our arms come round, and we help them along the path of learning. Students experience failure and the taste of disappointment in a safe place. If they are not allowed to learn this lesson now, then when?
Parents, thank you for your support. Thank you for being there, for your consistency and your example. Thank you for your unfailing support of Declo Elementary.
