Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year! We are approximately half way through the 2016-17 school year and we still have so many opportunities to make a difference in the lives of our students. Teaching and learning remains our key focus at Menifee County High School and I am confident great things are in store for our learning community. I can assure you that our staff, students, and families are working hard as a team to do just that.
Schools are often the hub of a community and it’s certainly no truer than right here in Menifee County. As I sit in my office while writing this message, I’m reminded once again to the sense of an “empty nest” and I reflect on the purpose of a school. Just as a rubber band is totally useless until it is stretched—its purpose for life—so, too, the value of this building is seen only when it is filled with people, working together—creating an environment where children become lifelong learners and active, engaged citizens in democracy. It is a quiet reflection, but nonetheless, gives a renewed sense of purpose to fight the good fight, finish the course, and keep the faith in the value of a Menifee County education.
We look forward to our students, faculty and staff returning January 4, 2017 and fill this building with people! May this New Year, and our school, be filled with blessings each day.
