We had the privilege of hosting the TSC Principals for a meeting on Wednesday. Our leaders showcased their public speaking skills by presenting and sharing about The Leader in Me program at Dayton. The principals were super impressed with our leaders! Great job!


I wanted to congratulate three of our teachers for becoming National Board Certified! National Board Certification was designed to develop, retain, and recognize accomplished teachers and to generate ongoing improvement in schools nationwide. It is the most respected professional certification available in K-12 education. Congrats to Mrs. MIller, Mrs. Vaughn and Mrs. Wainscott on this accomplishment.

In addition, congratulations to Mr. Scott for receiving the Creative Lilly Grant. This is also highly prestigious and difficult to accomplishment. I am one proud principal to say the least!!
