7th-grade students have begun their horror genre unit and have been researching the history and facts about Edgar Allan Poe. Students were asked to write two-sentence horror stories, and here are three samples of their work: I was in a little cabin all by myself. I closed my eyes only to open them to a dark and cold forest, but this was no normal forest.---Maxine Bland I arrived home and reached to open the door. On the floor, there was blood that read, "I'm watching you". ----Tyler Hickman I heard him pounding on the coffin, still underground. I smiled slowly as his pounding slowly faded to a stop.---Layla Huntington

June 29, 2022 Dear Leland Families and Community Members, The committee of ten would like to thank all of those who came out to vote on the local consolidation referendum. The referendum needed to be approved in both communities and it fell short. The feasibility study and consolidation effort have provided valuable and much-appreciated opportunities to engage with those who were for and those who were against consolidation. Both districts will continue to work individually, as well as together, to provide high-quality education that benefits our students and communities. Thank you so much for your passion for our children and schools.
