Superintendent's Message

Monica Burnett
Superintendent, Principal



Families--- Aren’t we lucky to be back in school again this fall? Although everyone was hoping we wouldn’t have to mask-up—we did and the kids are once again AMAZING! Thank you for supporting them and explaining to them that it is a rule and we have to obey rules as members of a society.

September is bringing lots of fun and enriching events to our school community. All grades will meet with Ms. Funk and K-6 will make plans for 4-H projects. The 7th and 8th graders are organizing the Junior FFA club here.

We will also start our K-5 Spanish program up again, so by the end of September, we should be in full swing on the agriculture and language programs.

The teachers report that kids are on task and are eager to learn all they can. The leadership students are planning 9/11 activities. The beginning of the year baseline testing is just about done and our middle school students are off to Housel for fall sports. There has already been a lot happening and it is only the 7th of September!

Please let us Know if there is anything we can do to assist you and your family. We are here to be of service.
