Rigor is creating an environment in which each student is expected to learn at high levels,
each student is supported so he or she can learn at high levels,
and each student demonstrates learning at high levels (Blackburn, 2008).

Is this your last week of school?

It is for our family, and there is a myriad of emotions.  The kids are excited and ready to be done!  Is that how you feel?  Then there's my sister, who has seen her two kids excel, and doesn't want them to lose momentum.  So she's scrambled around finding things for them to enjoy this summer.  And there's me, who still misses that moment when everything is stored, and finished, and put up for the summer.  That moment where everything is still, and you take a deep breath, and think about what you accomplished--and did not accomplish during the year.  No matter where you are, I'd encourage you to make a list of 20 things you DID accomplish this year--because I know you had at least that many.  It doesn't matter how small it is; celebrate!
