January 2022
A letter from Dr. Downs

Welcome back from Winter break and to the second semester. I hope everyone had a chance to recharge during the holidays. 

Our schools are gearing up for a busy and productive second half of the school year and there are several events in January aimed to serve our community.

  • All Pro Dad Event on January 11
  • Connecting with Wolves parent engagement night January 12
  • Annual Cookies and Cocoa 5 k January 22

I want to say congratulations to our State Champion Football Team, who once again helped all of us earn some gray hairs during the last few seconds of the State Championship game. 

Congratulations to Coach Appling, the Varsity Football Coaches, and the student-athletes on the third consecutive Football State Championship. 

I am very proud of our students' accomplishments during this first semester and excited to see how the second half of the school year showcases excellence in academics, athletics, and the arts.  

January is a time for setting goals and planning ahead I would like to thank the Superintendent's Advisory Committee and the Board of Education for adopting a two-year calendar at the last meeting. The 2022-2023 and 2023-2024 calendars can be found on our website.

I have mentioned many times that we cannot do what we do without the support from our families. I want to extend another thank you for your continued involvement in your child's education.

Happy New Year, Go Wolves!
