October is National Principal's Month! A Letter from Regional Superintendent, Chris Tennyson I want to take a minute and send you all a quick note from Josh and I. Since I have moved over to my position at the Regional Office I have been envious of all of you because there are many days I miss being a building principal when I would get my energy every day from the students and staff. However, I can honestly say since this pandemic started, my envy has turned to being in awe of all of you. The extra time and effort you have all put in the last several months has been unprecedented and you do it every day because none of this is the students fault and they deserve our help and support. All you get to hear about every day are the problems this pandemic is causing yet you keep focusing on those problems because putting out fires is what you do all day long. So on behalf of Josh, myself and our entire staff, Thank you for all you do for your students, staff and communities every day. Hope you have a great day and a great Principals month! Chris

This year Xello, an online program that engages students in a career exploration journey, will be used in many of the classrooms to encourage career exploration and to identify students for these programs. In the Education program, 6 students are participating in a 60 hours experience at the middle school and elementary schools in the area. During this time they will be working with students and experiencing the teaching profession. The Manufacturing Pathway are onboarding students to earn the endorsement.
