Teacher "Adoptions" on the Rise!
Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Thank you to all of the individuals and businesses who have "adopted" a teacher during the first few weeks of school (see list below).  Special appreciation goes out to Dr. Lloyd Darby and Kaysi Beverly, SDM music teacher, who both are working diligently to ensure 100% of the staff is adopted in the near future.  At this time, twenty-five teachers have been adopted.  If you would like to participate in this endeavor, please contact the school!
