A Note from the Principal

SCHOOL’S BACK IN ACTION—WELCOME BACK!!
 
One year ago, my ‘Welcome Back to School’ letter doubled as my brief introduction to the community.  I don’t know where the time goes, but 365 days later I take this opportunity to express how excited and fortunate I feel to begin my second year as Principal of Idalia for the 2017-2018 academic year.  
 
I hope everyone has had a fantastic summer.  Always perceived to be a time of rest and relaxation, instead I found that each time I ran into our students this summer, they updated me on summers full of time with family and friends, early morning weight room workouts, trips to the pool, branding calves, vacations, baseball, helping with a successful wheat harvest, athletic and summer camps, work, county fair preparations, winning National Championships in California (Congratulations Breann, Aubrey, and Mrs. Terrell!), among the many other activities that fill their summer schedules.  I love the fact that our students never truly slow down, preferring instead to go ‘pedal to the metal’ while soaking up all that a childhood in Idalia has to offer. 
             
We have also had a busy and productive summer here at the school.  Our number one priority was of course filling our dedicated and effective staff, which we are confident in achieving.  We are excited to welcome six new employees to our staff for the upcoming year; Chelsey Brittain (Elementary Para), Portia McPhail (3rd Grade), KC Higley (6th Grade), Audrey Sayles (Social Studies), Annette Zambrano (English), and Morgan Reese (Ag/FFA). We are also eager to welcome back Cyndie Weyerman (Special Education) to the staff.  These seven individuals join the rest of our staff that is dedicated and prepared to provide the best educational experience possible for your sons and daughters this academic year. 
 
I have had a great summer while escaping my principal duties for a few weeks by getting away.  However, as I sit here in my office on a hot, early-August afternoon finalizing this year’s Welcome Back Letter, something just doesn’t seem quite right.  As I stare out my office window, I see a parking lot that is much too vacant.  I open my door to a hallway that is far too quiet. I peer into classrooms empty of students.  Although summer, and the relatively quiet downtime that accompanies it is refreshing, I am now fully recharged and anxious for the school year to begin.  I yearn to see the high school boys’ loud, beat-up pickups fill the parking lot. I have the unusual desire to yell at the junior high girls to keep it down as they gossip and giggle by their lockers between classes.  I especially look forward to my lunch dates with the elementary students in which, undoubtedly, I will be filled in on all their summer adventures. Only then, will all be right in my world. 
I look forward to a safe, enjoyable, and productive 2017-2018 academic year.  My office door is always open as we continue our parent-school partnership, constantly striving for excellence in education.
