A Principal's Perspective
Chris Field was inspiring! I hope that you too took something away from his message that encouraged you as we finish out the year strong. What I will remember most was the reminder, "Hundreds of little people that will eventually become big people will remember your name. Your fingerprints are all over them." What a great reminder for us of the gift and privilege we have to influence young people which makes Each Life...Each Day...Each Hour very precious.
Be Innovative - Design the possibilities!

- We are changing out our phones. This week each classroom will have a new phone delivered. Please continue to use the old phone until we get the okay from technology that the new phones are in service.
Mustang Yee Haws!
- Ok, this is not a Yee Haw but really funny. Sometimes we get great absence excuse notes in the office. This one by far is the best. I thought we could all relate and laugh at the same time. Shared with permission.
