Let's Put a Flower on Top

Does anyone deserve Labor Day more than educators? I think not! I hope you enjoyed your 3-day weekend.


I think it's time to celebrate! We start block lunch this week because of the efforts of many of our Jasper staff, students, and parents. It's refreshing to be part of school that is all about risking the norm for exciting opportunities for staff and students. What I have enjoyed most about this venture is the process.


There will be a lot to learn this week. Please step out in the halls this week during block lunch to help students, observe, and be part of an exciting week on campus.


Let's make block lunch something special for the staff, students, and parents of Jasper High. Let's put a flower on top!
