We made it!!

What an exciting week it has been!! Lots of new faces, excited kiddos, and routines now in motion! It has been such a joy for me to see and get to be a part of the magic that happens on this campus!! Kids who were in tears on Monday and Tuesday came skipping in with big smiles on their faces all because of the impact that you have had on them in just this short (OK at times maybe long) week!! It's going to be such a great year!! #MISDProud


A huge shout out to our PTO for providing all staff and students with a new Baxter T-shirt to start off the year!! We are so Blessed to have so many parents who work hard to make the educational experience for our students the absolute BEST!! It's only the first week of school and they have already provided the staff with breakfast and lunch, gifted every staff member a gift card to use in their classroom, planted flowers out front, as well as the campus shirts! What a great partnership!!

Golden Nuggets from the Counselor

We are off and running. I will contacting you all to start scheduling classroom guidance. I normally have already starting visiting classrooms, but I am still learning the ropes. (So expect me early next year.)

I like to wander around some days and check on classes. Please just ignore me. I am making some notes and observing our students.

If you need me my office ext is 2507, cell # 601-467-6983, or call the office. If I am not dealing with another student, I will quickly make my way to you.

Looking forward to a great year with Baxter’s Best!!!
