Yellow quotes

Bethesda has a strong academic nurturing program. Students that demonstrate above grade level learning are recommended by their teachers to attend advanced academics nurturing classes so they can receive differentiated lessons on their level.

I know this is where I belong and what I am put here to do because I look forward to each day, I smile almost all of the day, students and staff seems happy to see me, and I am valued here.
