Schools are ‘student focused’

Our schools are designed to be "student-focused and future-driven." This simply means that we are here to prepare our students for the future by ensuring that they obtain the skills and knowledge necessary to be successful. We will help them acquire this knowledge and skill set by focusing on each and every student who steps in the doors of our classrooms. Accomplishing these tasks will not be possible without our Board of Education, faculty, staff, and community.

History is about making connections

A couple of weeks ago we had to put down our dog. Riley wasn't just any dog. He did not slobber or jump all over you. If he decided you were one of "his people" he would greet you with a wag of the tail and if you were really special he would lay his ears back, smile, and come over for a brief pat and then go back to doing what he did best…..stoically guarding his territory so his people were safe. Why am I sharing this with you? Why should you even care?
