A Message from Mrs. McDermand: Winter, 2019

Happy New Year Wildcat families! We are all excited to have the students back filling our classrooms and hallways with energy and enthusiasm for learning!  It is so nice to be able to spend time with our friends and family and come back feeling refreshed and ready to go!

The next few months will be very busy as we work towards excellence!  Testing season will be upon us very soon.  I am very confident in the great teaching and the eagerness to learn by our students. We will have another successful year here in Mount Enterprise!   We have a lot planned for this semester and I am excited to be a part of it!

As always, my door is always open and I welcome all parents.  I wanted to personally thank all of you for an amazing first few months in this district.  So many of you have been so kind and gracious and I truly feel like part of the Wildcat family! Please let me know how I can serve you!
