This year for Valentine's Day our FOR Club members wanted the world to know that LOVE comes in all colors and the importance of coming together and embracing differences. With that being said, our students issued multicolored hearts to faculty, staff, and their peers so that we could physically display our willingness to unite in the name of LOVE.
Our students also stuffed 200 goody bags filled with candy and kind messages for faculty and staff members to show their love/appreciation for these individuals. These tokens of LOVE were placed in each persons mailbox.

A big shout-out to the crew at the District Warehouse! These great people have enthusiastically taken on several new initiatives that line up with Mr. Carswell's vision to make our school district more efficient. They have been working to clean and reorganize the warehouse and will soon pilot a bar-coding program for the inventorying of equipment and supplies. They have also spearheaded the introduction of online auctioning, which will help in the liquidation of our surplus furniture and equipment. They have gone well beyond the call of duty and deserve a very big "THANK YOU"!
