Principal's Message

I hope you all enjoyed the extra 2 hours this morning. One thing that I shared in our Leadership Team meeting this week is from my PLC conference. I think it is important for us to keep understand how great our culture is at this point and what a wonderful staff we have. It is super important that we keep that fire going and do everything we can for our kids. They said at the conference, "every child in the building has the same last name". We should treat all children as if they are ours. Thank you for doing this each and every day!


Sincerely,

Adam

Colt Shout Outs

  • Shout out to Satchel VanVield. Thank you so much for opening your room to Foster, Thomas, and Robertson today. I hope everyone was able to take something from VanVield's lesson and apply it to their own classrooms. VanVield, you do such a great job with your students and I know it is hard to open your room, it takes a lot of trust, but THANK YOU!

    Thank you team for letting me cover your classes while you went and visited, I got to sort of "feel ya" when it comes to our math PLC conversations! Bless..

    So thankful to be a part of this amazing team! FIFTH GRADE ROCKS!- Mandy Shamblin

  • Shout our to Ms. Angie for coming quickly to clean up when a student got sick. To Mrs. Cook for blocking the path with trash cans during this situation and to Ms. Ellsworth for taking the student to the nurse. -Jeannine Bruce
  • Shout out to Mrs. Beaumont. Thanks for inviting me to come hang out with her class and watch how her students play “Prove it!” to explain all the ways different strategies they used to solve 8 + 4 = 12. I loved seeing those kindergarten math minds at work!-Sigler
