December 2019/January 2020

End of the Fall Semester

As the fall semester comes to a close, I want to thank our parents and community for your tremendous support. We all believe our kids deserve the very best, and I believe our community rallies behind them. Whether it be athletics, academics, FFA, band, or anything else, our parents and community show their support. I know our teachers and administrators work really hard to give their best and appreciate your support.

As we look to the new year, I am excited about the upcoming construction projects that will start next spring, working on a strategic plan for our district, and continuing to find ways to make student learning experiences relevant and authentic. We want to continue to engage our students to allow them voice and choice in the learning while we engage our parents and community in discussions about our hopes and dreams for our students.

I hope you will all join me in January in celebrating and showing appreciation to our dedicated Board. Mike McCreary, Joe Harvey, Tammy Phillips, Gary Lillard, Shelly Enloe, Kevin Dauster, and Phillip Pulliam form an amazing group of leaders who always put students at the forefront of all priorities.

Have a great break!

Matt Kimball
