It's February 13, 2012 as I am writing this and this is our first snow day of the school year. We have enjoyed a very mild winter so far, and with spring not too far away it is my hope that we will not have very many more inclement weather days this school year. It has been a very good year so far. Our students seem to be working harder than ever, and most of them seem genuinely happy to be here. We are doing some very exciting things in technology with plans for more in the next few years. I am honored to live and work in this community and to be a part of such an excellent school system. I look forward to many great things as we continue toward the conclusion of the 2011-12 school year.
