It is Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week in our school district. For the past 26 years I have worked with a tremendous group of faculty, staff, and administrators who go above and beyond to take care of our students. Thanks to each of you for all you do, it is appreciated!
A big thank you to Marshall Browning Hospital for offering Wellness Checks to our faculty and staff this past week. They provided blood sugar testing, blood pressure, BMI, and Pulse Ox. In addition, they discussed the Community Health Check and other new services including their Sleep Disorder Center for sleep apnea, new providers who started in January, and new specialty clinics. They also shared information about wellness opportunities. Thanks again to Marshall Browning Hospital!
We are excited about our new District website. We hope this platform of integrating a new website with other social media will be a unique and helpful way of sharing important information about the District and each school.
