THANK YOU LETTERS RECEIVED BY AIRMEN IN EUROPE
I am deeply moved by the group effort that delivered hundreds of 'thank you' letters to Airmen in Europe. Your time and effort did not go unnoticed! When I had first asked you (Mrs. Hayward) for a couple letters to lift the spirits of some Airmen during the holiday season, I was thinking I would receive around twenty, not hundreds. This goes to show the great compassion that your school district values.
I would like to tell you where these letters went and for what purpose. Your letters first arrived at the Airmen Ministry Center (Coffee Mill). The Coffee Mill is a center that strives to provide a home away from home for military members and their families. This faculty hung a portion of them on their walls for the Airmen to see during the holiday season. A smaller portion went in goodie bags that were sent home with the Airman on Thanksgiving and Christmas along with other treats. Afterwards, I coordinated with the USO Warrior Center and am in the process of sending them there. The USO Warrior Center is a place that strives to take care of the service members who are wounded and ill from their deployment missions. When the letters reach their faculty, they will be handed out accordingly.
Thank you for your time and love,
Mrs. Alexis Pliley
Coffee Mill Director
From the Superintendent
Mr. Rocky Aldrich
As we begin a new semester and you review your performance for first half of the academic ear, I would like to ask students the following questions:
Are you satisfied with your academic performance?
Did you complete all the work that was assigned to you, such as classwork and homework?
Have you availed yourself of the help offered by your teachers such as tutorial, opportunities to make up work, opportunities to retake test?
If you are not satisfied, what do you plan to do differently this semester?
Parents are the most critical assets in their child’s education. Children listen to and are influenced most by what their parents say to them and how they say it – by what their parents do with them and how they do it.
As we start a new semester, it is imperative for parents to:
· place a high premium on education
· make sure their child goes to school and to all classes every day
· make sure their child does in-school work to the best of his or her ability and puts in additional study time at home
· shows respect for teachers and for school staff
If I, or another staff member, can assist you in any way, please don’t hesitate to ask.
