Mrs. Hanson attended the Career & Technical Education Golden Hammer Awards and was impressed to see the number of opportunities afforded to students.  She is thankful that the state of Florida has a mindset to support teachers and stressed the need for all to work together to support teachers.

Mrs. Clark participated in the National Day of Prayer at a local church.

Mrs. Skipper also participated in the National Day of Prayer and extended heartfelt appreciation to her daughter's teacher and all teachers for teaching students how to read, ensuring their bright futures.

Mrs. Bolla encouraged contributions, which can be made through Clay Education Foundation, to the Dolly Parton Imagination Library so that the number of children receiving free books can be expanded beyond the current two zip codes.  She appreciated the talented artists, mathematicians, and hammer drivers she observed at recent events as well as a breakfast sponsored by Haskell, a teacher appreciation lunch with Clay Virtual Academy, and the teacher recruitment fair.

Mrs. Gilhousen is continuously impressed by the amount of opportunities afforded to Clay County students, ensuring that all can exceed and excel and looks forward to the upcoming graduation ceremonies.
