To the South Central Community:
The 2018-19 school year is in full swing now...nearly half over! Hard to believe that Christmas break is just around the corner!
On behalf of Rachel Wilhelm and her family, thank you to the South Central Community for your outpouring of prayers and support to Rachel Wilhelm. She continues to battle strongly and will rejoin our team as soon as she can.
Winter Sports Season is in full-swing. Be sure to check the district website, or contact the school, for a junior high or high school schedule. Our athletes give 100% every day at practices, and to have spectators watch them compete is momentum to keep giving. Thanks for your continued support of our athletic programs, and thanks for your positive cheering.
During the Christmas break (December 22 -- January 1), be sure to enjoy time with family and friends. I know I will be spending some quality time with my own family; this is very important to my wife and me. But also, I encourage our students to read--yes, READ--over break! Reading keeps the mind fresh and challenged. I am sure the classroom teachers and the librarian will be happy to provide suggestions of book titles to read over the break!! PS...Remember, the district will have an early release at 1:00pm on Friday, December 21.
I continue to simply enjoy my position as superintendent in this awesome district. When I walk through the halls of both buildings, and stop into classrooms occasionally, I continue to be excited about the awesome enthusiasm for teaching and learning that happens continuously and regularly. When I am stopped by community members, the typical response is one of pride for the school system. This makes me proud to be a Trojan!

Together we can,
