We started the school year last week with a pep rally which was also attended by the Academy students. The highlight of the pep rally was the dancing principal. It took a couple minuets too long for students and a few teachers to get on the gym floor and start dancing for me to stop cringing. She was cutting the rug, floor, like a champ. Mrs. Millard was my administrator a few years ago at Hayfield. She is topnotch and we are fortunate to have her as our principal.
The first week got off to the typical first week start which is even more atypical compared to other schools. The Academy has unique challenges which we deal with for sure at the front end of the year and go off and on during the school year. After a few roster issues we settled in to a routine which I expect will carry us through the first quarter and beyond. I have what seems like a great bunch of kids and am leaning forward with anticipation for the start of this school year.
I intend to update this blog at least two times a week and hopefully more. Please stay tuned and participate.
