HAPPY MONDAY TO YOU!!!

5 Quick Facts About a Colleague!

Cara McHaffie--Main Office

1. I met my husband, Andy on a blind date on Valentine’s Day. We have been married for 14 years.


2. We have two children. Jonah is 13 and Ruby is 8.


3. I enjoy the Hallmark Channel, baking cookies, playing cards and going to church.


4. I grew up in Washington, MO where my parents owned a funeral business. I worked with them as a funeral director until I came here to North.


5. One of the highlights of my life was the opportunity I had working as a special education para. FHN has an outstanding SPED department and I’m so thankful I got to be a part of it.


I nominate Steve Moorman.

Hall Monitors

Hello, we have been given the opportunity to have hall monitors until the end of this semester. On 12/14, we will have two substitutes and from 12/15-12/22 Darryl Davis and Zack Kling will serve as hall monitors. They know our school well and know a lot of our students. They will help to keep the hallways clear. Please help them by giving students passes. They will be instructed to walk students back to their classroom if they do not have one. Please let me know if you have any questions.
