A Visit With Abe

seated with hatParents and community members – Join us for a visit with Abraham Lincoln, the sixteenth president of the United States.  He will be arriving at the Hay Springs School Auditorium at 1:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 9, 2014.  Highlights of his visit include election highlights, inaugural speeches, and the Gettysburg address.

Just a taste of the presentation is this quote from his website: “As the 16th President, I was the first Republican, the first with a beard, the tallest, the first born outside of the original 13 colonies, the only one with a patent, the one who granted the most pardons, probably the strongest and one of the few poets.” (http://www.abelincolnalive.com/)

Board Approves 2014-2015 Calendar

During the February school board meeting, after much discussion, the board approved the school calendar for the 2014-2015 school year.  The approved calendar is similar to the current calendar and reflects the same number of instructional days.

The Board of Education appreciates the comments received from the community, staff, students and parents.    While it was impossible to accommodate every request or suggestion, the calendar does support our mission of a simple calendar and a schedule that reflects what’s bestfor student learning.
