Thank you for your unwavering commitment! πŸ’™ This year, we bid farewell to two exceptional individuals who have made a tremendous impact on our district. πŸ‘‹πŸΌ Dr. Mark Stanton, our long-time Superintendent, and Assistant Superintendent Joy Hardridge are retiring. 🌟 We had the opportunity to shake their hands, give hugs, and express our heartfelt appreciation for their many years of dedicated service. πŸ€— We also had the chance to recognize all our retiring teachers. We wish you the very best as you embark on this exciting new chapter of your life. Enjoy every moment and embrace the adventures that lie ahead! ✨ For our returning teachers, we hope you have an incredible summer filled with relaxation, rejuvenation, and plenty of memorable moments. You deserve every bit of it! β˜€οΈπŸŒ΄ And to everyone at McDonald County Schools, from our administrators to our support staff, we want to extend a massive THANK YOU for your unwavering dedication and commitment. πŸ™ŒπŸ½πŸ‘πŸ½ You are truly superheroes in the eyes of our students, and we appreciate you more than words can express.
