Today's Features


    We are two days away from the start of another fantastic school year.

    Wednesday is our first day of school. The first day certainly creates a hustle and bustle that is comparable to the holiday season. There is a sense of anxiousness and excitement among our teachers and our students. I look forward to the first day each year.

    Student success is the reason our faculty and staff work so hard to prepare, teach, evaluate and reflect. We’re working to create a better world one child at a time.

  • A road trip through Colorado and Utah provided the name for the band formed last year by Hardin County residents Aaron Fogle and Justin Perez.
