What is New!

Filed under: Uncategorized — Mr. White @ 1:42 am

As one returns from Spring Break we see a change  in a variety of things.  Extracurricular activities are changing with Baseball, Fastball and Track getting into full swing.  Many families have been away on holidays and the number of absent days for  holidays has really increased this year compared to previous years.   I read an interesting blog entry by someone I follow (George Couros).  He provided a question that is worthy of discussion with your child’s teacher.

1. How can we provide opportunities for our students to develop their learning while away without doing the traditional “worksheet packages” that have been sent in the past?

Someone asked how were the first few days upon returning from Spring Break.  Looking back to the two days “Variety” is the best word to describe them. From welcoming two new students from Columbia, course selections for next year, staffing, crosswalk responsibilities, an ailing classroom pet needing expert care, wet boots and socks, student issues, staff not feeling well, evaluations, practices, meetings, new haircuts, technology not working  to a few other things.

I would like to thank all our staff for their enthusiasm and compassion. By the way, we have great kids from K to 12 which means parents are doing some great things at their end. Thank You!



  1. I would like to say “Amen” to the great kids, great parents, and great staff comments.
