Student Focused. Strongly Connected. Success Driven.

Admin Update:

First of all, thank you to all who planned and participated in our fall festival last week. What a huge success. Have heard so many positive comments. I appreciate your efforts to make that go so well.

Building construction should begin to really move forward. As I have shared, the building will be without power for part of the weekend in order to get the utility relocation accomplished. Once that is done, we should really start to see some progress. Going to be fun to watch. Make sure you shut down your PC and monitor before you leave today.

Looking ahead, I know conferences are sneaking up on us. I am going to do my best to honor your time in the coming weeks; it's the most valuable commodity we have. We will meet VERY briefly for grade level meetings on Tuesday and then you can use the remainder of your time as you see fit. We will likely cancel the following week but will let you know for sure. Busy, hectic time of year, I know.

Special thanks to Mrs. Baker for all her efforts to help kids in Mrs. Happel's classroom. We were definitely blessed to have her.

We are also very fortunate that she will be stepping in for Mrs. Blakemore during her maternity leave after a brief hiatus.

Thanks, Brittany! We appreciate you!
