Superintendent's Corner
At this Monday's board meeting, each of the principals shared back-to-school activities from each of their buildings. Their enthusiasm for sharing the staff and student enthusiasm was exciting to hear. Thank you to all families for your support and patience in getting back into the swing of a new school year!

While we are just two weeks into a new school year, we are preparing for Homecoming next week. The parade will start around 1:40 PM with the game at 7:00 PM on Friday, September 22. We have a very special event planned this year at the beginning of the Homecoming football game. Due to a generous donation from the Whitnall Education Foundation, Flash the Falcon is undergoing a makeover, and the big reveal will be right before the players are introduced at 6:45 PM. Please join us in this exciting event. Watch our Facebook and Twitter account during the week for updates on the big reveal as Flash visits local businesses in the community!

We continue to review the traffic on 116th Street and will be introducing new safety measures in the upcoming weeks. Thank you for your attention and patience as we work to provide a safe environment for our students. Enjoy the gorgeous weather and weekend!
