I just learned this morning that a great colleague, coach, and champion for education, Coach David Barnes of Caldwell County passed away overnight. He impacted many lives and will be greatly missed. A true competitor and champion for kids...he will be missed.

I’ve been a part of several “smooth” first days but I have to say this year may have been the smoothest. Kudos to our students, staff, parents, admin, and especially bus drivers, foodservice folks and 👍👍👍 to the custodial crew. Awesome to be a part of such a great team!

DS Panther families please be reminded that tomorrow is the first day for students. Please be on the lookout for large yellow limos (school buses) and students on the streets before and after school. Also, we are now a totally tobacco and vape free campus 24/7. See you tomorrow!

This morning for our Opening Day we have Nurse Franklin up right out of the gate and we’re getting to it. We heard a little “Welcome Back Kotter” intro music get the day started. If that don’t make you smile I don’t know what will. 1st day for students tomorrow.

This morning in the elementary we have several teachers working on math related instructional practices... can you name 5 things you’d expect to be evident in every math lesson? They’re working on answering these kind of questions & how to implement them into daily practice.

Earlier today we had our annual DS staff & family “back to school” picnic. Some storms & rain moved in just when the we were supposed to kick things off... so some didn’t make it I expect due to weather concerns. All those who showed up ate well and had a good time i do believe.

The DS Panther Golf Team is prepping to head to the tees for their first match of the year. Looks like it’s going to be sunny and quite warm. Great day for golf.
