Thanks to our great Title 1 technicians, 3rd-6th grade students are participating their very own March Madness competition, but this time, it's all about math facts! Each student competes to recite math facts quickly and accurately. We're already down to the Elite Eight, and the finalists will get to compete against Mr. Duncan next week.

Mr. Duncan Shares Reflections of Leadership Day

Submitted by janelle.barrett on Wed, 03/08/2017 - 14:04

Mr. Duncan took a few minutes to sit down with me this afternoon and share some of his reflections from yesterday's 3rd annual Leadership Day. To hear the humility and gratitude in his voice was touching. Here's a brief summary of what he shared with me:

The turn-out from parents and community members was overwhelming. In case you didn't turn around, there was standing room only in the back of the auditorium. To take time on a Tuesday afternoon is difficult for many families and working individuals. This alone was a huge sign of support.

The excitement is palpable! The choir has been rehearsing, the emcees have their note cards written, and the greeters are already at their posts (ok, not really). We can't wait for all of you to see what our students have prepared. It starts at 1:00 sharp tomorrow - you won't want to miss this!
