As you probably were told by your student, we tried something very different for our first day of school. Usually the first week is broken up into various activities such as getting pictures taken, rules assemblies, PE lockers, student opportunities, and school layout.
Thanks to the expertise of Mrs. Godbold and Mrs. Larson, all of those listed events as well as addressing student wellness and school spirit activities were done in one minimum day and I thought it went very well. Assistant Principal, Mr. Lehault and I were able to spend an hour with each class talking about expectations and rules, but more importantly giving the kids a chance to get to know us. We had great conversations and our kids were awesome.
With the heat upon us, and with the support of the PTSA and Booster Club, we have installed 5 new drinking stations with filtered, chilled water. Each student also received a water bottle so that we can cut down on plastic usage.
All told, we are off to a good start and I look forward to having a great year.
My best to you and your families,
