Blackhurst Bobcats learning the "7 Habits"

The Blackhurst family had a wonderful first week of school. They kicked it off by learning about the 7 Habits with highly engaging lessons using the “First Eight Days” program. Students also learned about setting a WIG (Wildly Important Goal) and using Lead Measures to reach their WIG. Students and staff are ready for an awesome year full of learning and growth.

Harris Hawks run for fun(ds)

On Thursday, Sept. 2, Harris Elementary held their annual "fun run" in tandem with Boosterthon! Students from the school collected donations to contribute to a scholarship fund that will benefit former Harris Elementary students going to college. The school as a whole raised over $10K for the scholarship fund! Absolutely incredible!

The top fundraisers from each grade got to smoosh a cream pie in Principal Plumlee's face. Ever the sport, Mr. Plumlee took it like a champ. Great job Hawks!
