Temperatures in our region are plummeting as we are headed into the cold season. Please be sure to dress your student accordingly. If your child is in need of a warm coat or shoes, please call the school. Our staff members are discreet about making sure that your student is dressed for the weather.
Fall conferencing is behind us, and we want to thank all the parents and guardians who showed up to support their students. It is opportunities like these that enable students to showcase who they are, how they take ownership of their learning, and how they are planning for the future by setting short- and long-term goals.
Our Veterans Day assembly showcased how our students can put together an event around a day of remembrance as important as Veterans Day, and how the students in the bleachers are respectful during these official assemblies. We want to thank the community members that attended as well as the two guest speakers.
We welcome Mr. Mack McDaniel, our new English teacher. Mr. McDaniel replaces Ms. Ashley Adams.
The District's annual Harvest Feast will be this Thursday, November 20. Middle and high school will feast at 11:15; K - 3 at 11:45; 4 - 6 at 12:15. Each student may invite two family members. Sign-up sheets were sent home, so that our kitchen staff know how many people to prepare food for.
As we are entering the holiday season, the students have put the first quarter of the school year behind them. That means 45 school days. Our staff have enjoyed working with your students every day. The second quarter will be even better!
