Believe or not, Christmas Break is almost here. Thank you for the wonderful first semester of school. Fall sports, musical performances, elementary productions, FFA programs, and academic success mark the beginning of the 2018-2019 year. I want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for all they have done in making the start of this school year one of the best ever!
We have had a busy year, and the time has flown by so quickly. Our work continues to speak for itself. We’ve had the privilege to observe a number of staff and student accomplishments—I hope the pay raises we have been able to provide make up for some of the tough historic financial challenges that our staff has experienced over the last several years. I truly believe that we have one of the best groups of educators in the state and that is cause for celebration!
As we begin the holiday season, I encourage you to reflect on the things and people who are truly important in your lives. It’s important for all of us to step back and put things into perspective and appreciate our blessings. Although the holidays are a joyous occasion for many people, for others, it can be a tough time. For our students who go to homes that are not as comfortable or caring as our schools, this may be not be a joyous two weeks.
Please find a way to bring joy to someone else this holiday season, especially if you have the blessings of a warm home and a loving family. And when we all return next semester, bring the happiness of your home to our schools so they can continue to be a safe haven for those who need it to be.
My wife, Denise, and I wish you and your family Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. This is a high travel time, so please be safe and take care of yourselves, your family and friends. We’ll see you again in 2019!
Larry R. Johnson, Superintendent
