|?JAKE'S TAKE ON TECHNOLOGY
Jake Ragusa - Instructional Technology Coordinator
|We are nearing the end of the first half of the school year. A great deal of work has been accomplished, but there is so much left to do. Since we have just celebrated Thanksgiving, let me offer thanks to some of those who have been such a great help this year. For their support, I want to thank Mr. Virgil Allen, Mrs. Marj Morgan, Dr. Beth Moulds, Robert Morgan, Vicki Allen, all the principals and the Title I staff. I would also like to thank Vicki Blackwell, Linda Whitworth, Scott Diepenbrock, and Carl Head for being a joy to work with. Most importantly, I want to thank the teachers who have responded so enthusiastically. I was extremely pleased with the number and quality of the teacher grant applications submitted. I expect many of our students to benefit from these extra efforts by their teachers. Lastly, I thank God for the real reason for this season --his son, Jesus. I hope and pray that our efforts to help His children will ultimately be successful.
