In the Spotlight

Website Makeover Underway
One highlight of many technology upgrades taking place throughout the district

Please pardon the temporary disruptions that may occur in locating your favorite places on our website. We are undergoing a template 'facelift,' which we believe will bring you better access to your most valued information. 
One area you will notice immediately, is the 'global icons' which are directly above this 'In the Spotlight' feature. These icons will give you one-click access to the areas of our website that are most frequently visited, as well as to our social media accounts on Twitter and Facebook. Another great feature is that we have switched our calendar option to Google calendars, which means you will be able to subscribe to your child's school calendar and overlay it with your own calendar if you are a Google user. 
Functionality and features will be improved and built upon as the days progress. Please be patient as we do our best to update the site as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Stop by Twitter or Facebook and let us know what you think!

If children live with criticism

they learn to condemn.

If children live with hostility,

 they learn to fight.

If children live with ridicule,

they learn to be shy.

If children live with shame,

they learn to feel guilty.

If children live with encouragement,

they learn confidence.

If children live with praise,

they learn to appreciate.

If children live with fairness,

they learn justice.

If children live with security,

they learn to have faith.

If children live with approval,

they learn to like themselves.

If children live with acceptance

they learn to find love in the world.
