Saying Goodbye

In one of my very first newsletters, I shared the following thoughts, about the meaning of the word HOME. "Home is defined as the place in which one’s affections are centered. I find myself describing Keller-Harvel as my home away from home." I have loved every minute of every day at KHES. Since my arrival in December of 2011, I have thought of our school as my home away from home. I want to thank each of you for allowing me to be part of the Keller-Harvel home.

Your children have blessed my life in so many ways. I am in awe of how kind, sensitive and smart our Cowboys & Cowgirls are. You all have been such a joy to work with and I just want to thank you for the many kind words and well wishes as I take a new path in my journey in education. I will forever be Cowboy Strong and Cowboy Proud!

Field Day

Mrs. Shipp, Mrs. Warrick and all of the teachers and kids have had a great Field Day today. The rainy weather didn't dampen anyone's high spirits. Fun was had by all! We appreciate all of Mrs. Shipp's hard work in making this day so much fun.

4th grade Play Day

Our 4th graders enjoyed a Play Day on Tuesday. There was a little mist but again, they played hard, ran hard, and had a ton of fun. Congratulations to the girls for winning first place in the Tug of War!
