A new school year has officially started, and with it comes an opportunity to learn new skills, create more friendships, and grow both as a student, an advocate, and a person.
We asked families to reflect on the start of this next chapter by finishing this sentence:
This school year, I want to ....
Here are some of the responses we received:
Learn and make friends - Janiya D., Chicago
Make good grades for a better education future - Ruiz M., Santa Cruz, Calif.
Push myself in exploring ways to make learning more interesting and successful for my students! - Sandra M., Chicago
Reach more parents in the school. Provide new resources. Encourage them to finish the goals they started last school year. - Arnette M., Chicago
There's still time to set your own school year goal. Think about what one big thing you want to achieve, then share it with us!
