Thank you to all the parents that were able to make it out for Parent’s Weekend. The boys had a wonderful time! It was a special week!
Parent weekend was not the only thing that made last week special. Last week, our new Education Director showed up on the scene. Enter Jolyn Mitchell.

Her experience in working with students of all backgrounds has fostered a love for the learning process and a student-centered approach to education. She has a BS in elementary education, an MS in curriculum and instruction as well as an Ed S. in administration and supervision from Tennessee State University in Nashville. She has experience in public and private education and has served her school communities in many ways; such as athletic director, emergency response team, mentoring programs and more.
