Longleaf School of the Arts
Celebrating 10 Years of Excellence
With Immense Gratitude....
I wish there were more people on earth who could say how grateful they are to wake up every morning to go to a place where there is LOVE, PRIDE, and APPRECIATION shared amongst everyone. I have the honor of leading a school community that is unlike any other. What we - LSA staff, students, and parents - have built together surpasses what any great school enviroment could ever offer.
Our staff TRULY love our students. Our students show pride in their school by respecting our staff and each other. Our parents and board of directors are supportive and appreciative of the work we do each day! Yet, there is so much more we have planned to offer!
This week was incredible . . . Thank you for the encouraging messages, food, flowers, hugs, and gifts! Most of all . . . thank you all for allowing me to serve as the Head of School at Longleaf School of the Arts! I sincerely LOVE each and every one of you!
A heartfelt "Thank You" to my two amazing Assistant Heads for School for taking the lead on Friday!
