Mr. Blissett has been so diligent in cleaning and improving our physical environment during the day. He is quick to take care of our needs and ALWAYS with a smile! His expectations for our students are high as well, having had a “talk” with some students needing a gentle reminder about behaviors!

Thanks for all you do! Third Grade


You did an AWESOME job! Thanks so much. I know Pam will find comfort in it.

Thanks to Tracy Jernigan for being flexible and allowing me to try out a new lesson!

Regina Erwin!!! Thank you so much for letting me borrow your Lego’s so I can try out some new lesson!

Celebrating Kindness!

I just completed reading Wonder to my class, and my kids were in aww of the following passage:

“Kinder than is necessary. Because it is not enough to be kind. One should be kinder that needed. Why I love that line, that concept, is that it reminds me that we carry with us, as human beings, not just the capacity to be kind, but the very choice of kindness. Such a simple thing, kindness. Such a simple thing. A nice word of encouragement given when needed. An act of friendship. A passing smile.”

With it being Kindness Week, I found this passage so appropriate not just for our kids, but for all of us a people! Have a great day!!


You Make A Difference!!

We all make a difference,

This much is true.

But what an impact has been made

By the one and only you.

You push me to do more

To never settle for less.

Your constant support

Is the secret to my success.

Your students know

How amazing you are.

You always believe

That they will go far.

So let’s cheer and let’s clap

For my partner in crime.

The difference you make

Is worthy of the time.

Congratulations, Deborah Stoyko! You make a difference!
