Morning Arrival! Thank YOU!

Thank you, parents, friends, and families for making sure students arrive to school on time. Our number of tardies have significantly decreased... and that is because we are ALL working together. We greatly appreciate your efforts!

STAFF Shout Out-Mrs. Bass

Mrs. Bass gives 100% effort, 100% of the time. Her passion for music combined with her love for children makes her music room a true symphony of learning! What a gift she has, and what a gift she IS! From music class to program practice to All-City Choir rehearsal, thank you for serving our Baxter community with excellence!

Staff Shout Out- Mrs. Eidson

Our kiddo came home Friday and could not wait to tell us about "the most fun lesson ever" that Mrs.Eidson had planned. A government lesson that used candy to teach taxation was a creative way to engage students and help them understand the concept of a monarchy. This will be a lesson he remembers always. ~Urquhart Family
