Greetings from the desk of Mr. Buzzard:
Leaves are turning and the air is getting crisp in the evenings. It must be October.
As we finish our first month of school, we hope that you feel that the school year has started off as well as we do. It is good to be back in the middle school with the entire building open and dry. We are in the middle of a stretch of 5 day weeks that will take us right up to Thanksgiving vacation. Help us to work on our students developing good habits and beneficial routines. These will be needed when our schedules deal with interruptions caused by holidays and weather issues. As always, thank you for all of your help and cooperation as we attempt to instruct our students and prepare them for state testing.
