Congrats buddy. You know how to do it. We showed you a little. Now all you have to do is run with it. Be firm and fair and work harder than everyone else... the rest will take care of itself.

Walking through schools today I had a chance to run across Principal Ward and Mrs. Gray working on our new reading mastery program and doing some planning to maximize resources.

Principal Marshall has declared today “Thumbs up Thursday” in the Jr/Sr High. Ms. Fight flew the drone up to snap some pics. My video is not near as good as the pics will be. Check out the video below. We’re off and rolling on this wet day #2.

It’s a great day so in DS. We’ve had our Boo Hoo breakfast for incoming Kindergarten folks and our HS admin has addressed our student body and seniors were welcomed by their classmates. 2018-2019 is officially ON! It’s going to be a super year.

At the DS City Council Meeting last night they approved hiring a school resource officer (SRO) for our district. The city will be posting a job looking for the SRO in the coming days. They will be looking for a credentialed retired officer to work only during school sessions.

Another video as a follow up to the last post. There were a few groups I didn’t get pics or see the videos they made. I did hear Wayne Simpson and Kyle Chappell sing with their group though. They’re top notch but I don’t have the video evidence. 👍👍

Over the past couple days both our elementary and Jr/Sr HS have been working on Professional Development in various areas. The positivity has been awesome. Today I was visited/contacted by a few doing team building activities. The vids show yet again why DS is a special place.

Today we had our DS staff “back to school” picnic. I think those who braved the heat and showed up had a super time. It was a little toasty at times but I think a good time was had by all. Thanks to all those who made it. Here’s a few pics. I have to admit the grill was smoking.
