Learning Without Limits

SHS Band Trip Recap

Seaman High School Band Director Anna Kennedy and members of the band provided a recap of their recent trip to Orlando, Florida. The group visited Disney World and participated in workshops, learned about production for large outdoor performances and then the students were able to put on their own performances for Disney World guests. Seaman High School band students had a great learning experience and brought home some fun memories of their trip to Disney!

Superintendent Remarks

Mr. Willson recognized department directors in his Superintendent Remarks. "They make everything we do at the district level and buildings happen and because they tend to work behind the scenes always recognizing others, the public rarely thinks about the contribution of our directors," said Willson. "I am very blessed to be able to work with such great people who are a great team."

President Remarks

Michelle Caudill welcomed everyone back from Spring Break and highlighted the importance of the adults in our kids' lives. "Every child needs at least one person that goes to battle for them, that shows an interest in what they're doing, and shows that they care about that child. That gives that child worth," said Michelle. "I think that in our district and our community, we do that in a way that you see it in multiples. The majority of our kids have multiples of that support system going on and I think that comes from the top down. It comes from our community, it comes from us, it comes from our teachers, our admin, and it just makes our community an even better place to be." Michelle thanked everyone for everything they do for our students.
