Principally Speaking

The first week of February flew by. Midterm grades will be posted and ready for parent viewing today. Please take a look at your student's performance to date. It is not too late to make adjustments and improve grades if needed. Should you have concerns, please contact your student's teacher or teachers directly.


Have an excellent weekend! It is a pleasure to serve you and your students.

Getting Kids to Count Their Blessings

Materialism isn’t just about wanting more stuff. It’s a much more insidious mindset. The antidote may be as simple as practicing gratitude.

Nutrition Club

The Nutrition Club provides supplemental weekend food for children at North, South and the Middle School each Friday during the school year. We all struggle at some point. The goal of this program is to ease a bit of the struggle. You are welcome to sign-up at any point during the school year. The food will be sent home in a plastic bag that can fit inside a school backpack or be carried. You only complete one form per family. List all of your children that you would like to participate. Each child in your family will receive their own cinch sack or bag on Fridays throughout the school year. This program is the result of the generosity of the Danville community!
