Principal of the Day- Mr. Phoenix Hixson-House

On Wednesday, March 6, Mr. Phoenix Hixson House, was Principal of the Day! Mr. Hixson House started his day with classroom observations. He spent time in band and the students played him a special song. Mr. Hixson House then observed Kinder and 1st grades. Next, he assisted me in hosting Lunch with the Principal for our 3rd through 5th graders that won Lunch and a School Tour with the Principal. Knowing we would be exploring secret areas of the school, Mr. Hixson House wanted to leave a special note for his tour guests! After lunch and the school tour, Mr. Hixson House was able to help me teach second grade while the teachers attended a special professional development meeting. We were able to have all 3 second grade classes engaged in a technology lesson! Mr. Hixson House ended his day by making an announcement on the intercom.


This year, Sam Hughes was able to enter 15 Science Fair Projects into the city-wide SARSEF Science Fair at the TCC. I am pleased to announce that 9 of the projects received recognition at SARSEF! Thank you for representing Sam Hughes!
