Mrs. Jeanne Davis, Superintendent 



We begin our school year with a Solar Eclipse.  These events rarely happen and will be a memorable beginning.  First through 6th grade teachers are planning a viewing event and will be communicating with our school families very soon.  All students and staff attending the viewing will be wearing protective glasses specifically ordered for this event.  I believe the eclipse will occur in the early afternoon, so please be careful as you are driving. I am sure there will be some folks distracted as they look to the sky instead of the road!

Something else worth noticing is the condition of the grounds.  Please make sure to visit the manicured garden inside the Elementary building and pay attention to the condition of the lawns.  Weeds have been “eaten” and trees pruned.  There have even been some flowers planted!  Thank you to Dick Well and the custodial staff and our summer helpers.  Much work has been completed at the High School, as well.   We placed a new freezer/cooler in the kitchen and updated all the main restrooms.  We have begun to replace the aging wall paper with new wall covering and have completed the removal and replacement of  floor tile in another hallway.  Both buildings are sparkling!

This year we are going to make student attendance a priority.  “On Time, All Day, Every day!”  Coming to school “on time, all day and everyday” teaches our young people…even the tiniest among us…discipline, responsibility and work ethic.  All of these qualities are necessary as we prepare these students for college and career.  The General State aid we receive from the government to buy supplies and materials for our classrooms depends on the number of students who regularly attend school.   Children need parents and guardians to encourage them to be here.  Help us help them to be “On Time, ALL Day, Every day!”

Welcome back!  

Jeanne Davis, Superintendent
