We Are Open!! Kids Are Our Business!!

Take a look at some highlights from our School Supply Drop Off Night. This evening was the first time that our community of parents and students entered the building. We had a few special guests too! We were lucky to have Joe Douglas Johnson (Joe Lee's son) in attendance! 

Follow us on our journey as we dream big, and try to live up to Joe Lee Johnson's legacy!

AMAZING Books Part 3!

August 1st?!?! Already???

Is it just me, or does it seem like moments ago we were counting down the days until summer? Now we're in August- BACK TO SCHOOL MONTH! We are about to begin an amazing journey together as we open the doors to our district's first STEAM Academy!!! Our teachers and staff have all been working hard this summer to help ensure that each of you creates a legacy, just like our namesake, Joe Lee Johnson. We are counting down the days until school starts!!!

In the last week, I've gotten a few more AMAZING book reports. For those of you just tuning in, all incoming Trailblazers are invited to share a book they've read this summer that they thought was AMAZING! When school begins, I will contact all who participated, and they will get to choose any book from our library to be dedicated in theirr name. I want to honor those students who have made sure to make reading a priority this summer!

This week I heard from Emma, Teya, Xela, and Maggie. I love getting to know your reading interests and the books that you enjoy! So far it seems that many of you really enjoy funny books! Here are the books they shared, as well as the book I'm currently reading (Unusual Chickens For The Exceptional Poultry Farmer).

How is your TBR (To Be Read) list coming along this summer? Have you met your reading goal? Don't forget to share your AMAZING Books with me by filling out this form!
