Superintendent Weekly Update

I hope that this weekly update finds you in good health and enjoying the "fall like" temperatures.  It is hard to believe that we are almost to the end of September. I went to almost every building in the school district and sat in on many of the professional development sessions.  My heart soared as I saw the excitement staff members had for learning new ways to impact children and for sharing their ideas with others.  Our kids are certainly very lucky to have such dedicated professionals such as yourselves working with them every single day.  Special thanks to Dr. Sabrina Woodruff, Andrew Huber, Dena Doolin, and Diana Alliod for putting this fantastic day together,  Special thanks also to all our staff members who led sessions.

Community Spaghetti Dinner- On Tuesday, October 4, from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. our district will be hosting a Community Spaghetti Dinner at WMS.  I encourage everyone to come out and enjoy the spaghetti and watch many of our talented student groups perform.  The event is free.

High School celebrates Constitution Day

Friday, September 16 was Constitution Day and the High School celebrated by starting the day with announcements explaining Constitution Day.  Jon Miller, dressed as Thomas Payne, did a hilarious rap of "Bill of Rights...rights...baby: and the "Constitution Shuffle" which he made up.  He had students bring in America themed desserts and treats as well that day - like cookies with flags on them.
