6th & 8th Grade News from Mr. Sanguedolce: “Aim for success, not perfection. Never give up your right to be wrong, because then you will lose the ability to learn new things and move forward with your life. Remember that fear always lurks behind perfectionism.”
David M. Burns.  This is the last week of school, work that is. We are finishing up 16th century global expansion and the effects on society. Not much left to do other than turn in books and clean up desks. I want to take this opportunity to thanks all the parents for their support and hard work keeping their children on track. It has been a true pleasure. Now to the graduating 8th grade.  You are going to stumble and at times course work will be difficult. Just remember that you can achieve anything are long as you try. I believe all of you have the capabilities to succeed and make High School a great experience. I wish you the best and I know you are ready for anything that comes your way. I so very proud of you and glad I’ve been part of your education.  Thank you.  Good Luck and God Bless.
