From the Boss...

I hope everyone had a safe and Merry Christmas! I hope you all enjoyed your time with your families and friends. I know I did!



  • We will have faculty meeting tomorrow after school. We will be looking at the Spring calendar and meeting in committees to finalize some decisions for upcoming events in the Spring.
  • Spring semester ALWAYS flies by- Be sure to stop and enjoy your students in your classroom. You only have them for 95 more days!
  • Mrs. Bridges and I will be coming to the classrooms to complete teacher observations over the next 2 months. Our goal is to be completely finished by February 29th.


Love you,

Casey Hanna
