Back-to-school encouragement at Burr

August 30, 2017

The first day of school can be both exciting and daunting. Kids are happy to renew their friendships with those they haven't seen all summer -- but also fearful of what might be ahead academically. That's why I greeted kids at the Burr Elementary School on August 29th with cheers, high-fives and words of encouragement! Kids should know they have the support of parents, teachers and everyone in the community because we want them to succeed today, tomorrow and throughout their adult lives.
