I wish I had a principal like you when I was in high school!!!!!!!!!!


We had almost 4,000 students in our school though, so it would have been kind of tough for ours to get to know everyone.

Good Morning MMC!!!!!!! It's going to be a windy cool day here in Central Indy with a high near 50. It's going to be a long day here. My youngest niece refused to go to bed last night. It was 1am before she went to bed. Then she was back up at 3 and didn't go back to sleep until 5. Then she got up for good at 7. I see a nap in our future!!! But first, I'm going to put them to work dusting and running the sweeper. I hope everyone has a GREAT DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Aw, this made me tear up - what a wonderful thing he did!
