Superintendent's Message

Monica Burnett
Superintendent, Principal



Can you believe that November is half way done? Thanksgiving is around the corner, and Christmas is close behind! Just like October—November and December bring their own type of fun to our small school.


The halls are filled with tributes to our Veterans. Christmas songs can be heard coming from the classrooms as young voices are trying to learn them for our pageant. The crisp air outside brings a freshness inside the halls, and our decorations are embracing the seasonal changes. What a beautiful time of year. November gives us time to think about all that we have to be grateful for. The saying a grateful heart is a happy heart, certainly rings true. December brings much anticipation and a few nerves as the kids will be performing our version of The Best Christmas Pageant Ever! We are all excited about having our Christmas pageant back this year.


Staying in the spirit of the season, a note of thanks--- Thanks for sharing your kids with us. We love them!


May these holidays bring you many blessings.
Monica Burnett
