News & Notes

  • Budget Item: During March, our pod printing more than doubled which doubled the costs! Yikes! Please remember that it is cheaper to forward your document to the copier than printing large amounts on the printers. To print on the copier costs .0055 per sheet while printing on the printer costs .0119. Of course, printing in color is like gold. Grade level leaders if your curious on your team's count, please see Bonnie. Please note, I am not micromanaging. We all have one budget and it takes all to make it work.
  • Several staff members attended the funeral for Jonathan McCleney, the dad of Madison in 3rd grade. While we never understand why a great dad of 39 years leaves this life, it sure reminds me of the importance of people - our family, friends, and colleagues. Although a busy, busy season for all, let's remember to take the time to enjoy the ride.

Mustang Yee Haws!

  • Congratulations to Sarah Rhine and Taylor Leblanc who are both expecting babies!
