  • Schools, students perform well

    The leaves are turning and fall break is just around the corner — I can’t believe how quickly the first two months of school have gone by. I have to give credit to our teachers and staff for their amazing ability to quickly get students back into the swing of things. From day one, they hit the ground running and got students engaged in learning. I am so thankful we have that kind of staff. 

    I also owe a debt of gratitude to our parents and community who provide endless support to students both inside and outside the classroom.
