Happy Valentine's Day! Tomorrow, students may wear a solid red, pink, or white shirt and jeans in honor of Valentine's Day! Parties will be in the afternoon, as we have lots of learning to do in the morning.

We have a Professional Development Day on Monday, February 17, so no school for students. Also, Tuesday is a Parent Night, from 6:00-7:00. (See below for the details) We hope you can join us as we have parent sessions on CCMR and LifeLeader! Make plans to attend!

Have a great weekend!

Parent Night on Tuesday, 2/18, from 6:00-7:00


We hope you can join us on Tuesday night for another Parent Night for 2019-2020! Please plan to arrive at 6:00 and head to your child's classroom. Your child's teacher will give an update on what is going on in their class and what is coming up in their classroom and grade level.

At 6:25, we will transition to a parent class on one of the following topics:

6:30-7:00 Life Leader in the Gym--Learn more about our LifeLeader attributes and how our students are learning about them from our specials team!

6:30-7:00 CCMR in Mangrum Hall--Learn from our Secondary CTE Coordinator, Leigh Dopson, about CCMR and how you can encourage conversation with your child about college, career, and military readiness.

We hope to see you there!



When you are ready for life, you have a clear perception of your personality. You know what your strengths are as well as your weaknesses. You understand your own thoughts, beliefs, motivation, and emotions. You take the time to express how you feel, reflect on thing you could improve on, and ask for feedback from others. By doing these things, you are using the leader attribute, Self- Aware.

This weeks I will statement “I will be aware of myself by knowing my strengths and weaknesses.”


This week we are spotlighting the U. S. Naval Academy in Annapolis, MD. Roger Stalbach, former NFL player; Jim Lovell former astronaut, and Senator John McCain are a few of the famous alumni for the Naval Academy. Visit: to learn more.
