Hello Asbury Families,
Stop….Take a moment to BREATHE! It is now winter break! You and your family now have time to stop, breathe, and just be!
Can you believe it!? We have already been in school for half of the school year- can you believe it!? We have had so many fun PBL projects, read countless books and had discussions and defended our math problems! When we come back from break we will continue to focus on PBL, inclusion, and SEL.
I am eager to see you upon your return and hope that you take time to do what you love over the holidays!
