Continue to use Clorox Wipes and Lysol every day. Leave your doors open at the end of the day and turn your heat down. :-)
In order to help with the spread of lice, please spray your rugs, chairs, etc., with lice spray periodically. Also, make sure students are keeping their coats in their bookbags or cubbies. We have pony tail holders in the office if students need to put their hair up. Let's do all that we can to keep lice away!

Math King and Queen
Mr. Cody Dysart
Matt and I have been interviewing for our PE position for the last three weeks. We recommended Mr. Cody Dysart this week to join us for the upcoming school year as our PE teacher. While he won't be recommended to the board until the May board meeting, I wanted to go ahead and let you know since I am sure the news will begin to travel fast. Cody graduated from Erskine with a sports medicine degree and then went back to Lander to obtain his PE certification. He married Marlee Rhodes, a Williamston girl, and is living in this area. He played baseball with Sam at Erskine and is looking forward to joining our school. :-)
