Classroom

Teacher of the Year

Academy

Spring is a busy time in the fields. Farmers work between rainstorms to work the ground and plant the crops. That means tractors and equipment will be on country roads. Please drive with caution, slow down when you see the farm equipment, and everyone will have a safe spring.
