January, 2020

Greetings Cardinal Fans,


The second semester is in full swing at “The Nest,” and the students and staff are excited about what a new year has to offer our school and community. During our January 6th staff in-service, I spoke about the importance of reflecting on what has occurred in our lives throughout the past year. I spoke about this because it is my belief that in order for us to be better, we must spend time in self-reflection. It is also my belief that for our school district to improve, we must do the same. The benefit of self-reflection is it allows us to have 20/20 vision. As we reflect on 2019 from a school district vantage point, we have many great things to celebrate. Here is just a small glimpse of all the great accomplishments:

  • Students Instruction
    • Creation of a district preschool program
    • 1:1 technology implementation for students in grades 7-12
  • Staff Development/Recognition
    • Ongoing professional learning opportunities for staff members
    • Monthly opportunity for staff to share their Cardinal Victories with the school board
  • Building/Facility Improvements
    • Completion of the new elementary wing, gymnasium air conditioning, and playground projects
    • Renovation of existing upper elementary wing into our new art and weight rooms
    • Major softball & football field improvements
  • Community Relations
    • Implemented a monthly board spotlight to recognize and celebrate students, faculty, and community accomplishments
    • Reopened positive lines of communication with the Osborn School District 

As always, do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or concerns. I am here to serve our students and you as members of the Cardinal community.

We look forward to seeing you at #TheNest.

Michael Stephenson, Superintendent
