This quote is so true!!!

Thank you for always thinking BIG, being BOLD, and having what's best for students as the most important thing!!!!! I am so appreciative of you and how hard you work every day. I know it's not easy, but we are playing such an important part in our student's journey in life!!! We are such an important part of THEIR story!

Mashburn Spotlight!!!

Thank you so much to Emily Rodriguez, Jenna Thurmond, Nicole Pettus, MaryClaire Powell, Crystal Catoe, Dotty Fobes, Susan Hutto, Jenny Hartzler, Lynne Mashburn, Kim Lochbaum, and Chelsea Hill for volunteering to stay after school on Fridays to plan and create extension activities for students who need enrichment! Your time and efforts are very much appreciated!


A HUGE thanks to K, 1,2 and special others (and anybody else who came) to brainstorm how we can close the gap for our most at risks students! We have a great plan!!!


Today at our house meetings we had a very special visitor. Scott Schickler, one of the co-founders of the 7 Mindsets was in OUR house seeing OUR house meetings. He made it to 5 different houses and was VERY impressed!

Your day starts at 7:40!

I am not a fan of whole staff emails addressing being on time for school but I know that we miss seeing people who come in on the side or back of the building. For the past two weeks, we have noticed MANY MANY people coming in after 7:40. Remember your day starts at school at 7:40 - to be in your spot! I am not talking about the occasional coming in at 7:40 because you had a flat tire. I am talking about those that are coming in most days after 7:40. You know who you are.. :)
