Principal Notes 11.23.2015
Where has the 1st semester gone??? As we move toward the Holiday Season, I find it a good time to look back upon the accomplishments of the students of Johnson-Brock over the past few months. Academically, our students continue to demonstrate excellence in the classroom. Many students met the requirements of participation on the honor roll and all strive to do well on their daily studies. We have also seen a steady decrease in the number of students attending Eagle Assist. This is encouraging because it means students are completing their homework in a timely manner.
Athletically, the high school football team reached the 1st round of the playoffs for the first time in a number of years. It was an exciting season that saw tremendous growth out of the young student athletes. The high school volleyball team became STATE CHAMPIONS with a thrilling run through the state tournament. The girls played their best when it mattered most and put a team on the floor that we all can be proud of. It was great to see so many Eagle fans supporting the team throughout their run. The junior high football and volleyball teams also completed successful seasons as they continue to learn the fundamentals and strategy of their respective sports. Basketball season is right around the corner and it promises to carry on the excitement of the fall sports season.
As I walk through the hallways of the building, I am impressed with the amount of learning taking place. The elementary hallway is filled with posters, projects, and activities that demonstrate the successes of our students. Middle and high school students have also stepped up and taken leadership roles through school events such as the Veterans Day program, Dodge Ball Tournament, Cheerleading, Publications (yearbook and newspaper), broadcasting, and many other activities. In each instance, the students have shown a tremendous amount of Eagle Pride and represented our school in a positive manner.
Recently, we had the opportunity to celebrate American Education Week. This was a great opportunity to recognize those individuals who make our school system the success that it is. Teachers, para-educators, bus drivers, secretarial staff, food service workers, and substitute teachers all make positive contributions to our school and students. It is with great honor that I express my gratitude for all the hard work and dedication that each of these individuals pour into our building each day. Their efforts help provide students with an educational foundation based upon doing the right thing all the time. We are thankful to have so many caring individuals in this community who value the importance of education!
