Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday of the year. (This probably does not surprise you since it is focused around food!) I like the fact that this holiday has not been as commercialized as Christmas and others. It simply focuses on family and being thankful for what we have been given.
I have been blessed with an incredible wife, great family, true friends, and a career that I love. I encourage you to remember that each and every one of us are richer than 90% of everyone in the world. The most important things often cost the least and deserve our greatest thanks.
For those of you that decide to participate in Black Friday please don't get run over by the stampede or elbow someone out of the way as you run to grab the new X-Box, Apple Watch, or other extraordinarily discounted sale and end up in jail!!!!
I pray that each of you are truly blessed during the holiday!

In the November business meeting the Board of Education presented its Excellence Award to longtime Central Elementary volunteer "Ms. Joe" Venzlaff. Principal Shane Medlin introduced Ms Joe and board member Dr. Devon Jarvis made the presentation on behalf of the board.
On behalf of the Board of Education, I'm pleased to introduce our newest member, Mr. Ron Crighton, who was nominated and sworn in to fill the seat vacated by John Hartley last month. Mr. Crighton, to use his own words,"bleed(s) black and white".
One of the tasks we have as a school district is getting important information to you in a timely fashion. We believe it’s helpful to you and to the school if you have information about daily attendance, school cancellations, important reminders and emergencies as soon as possible.
