“We've Got MOJO!”
(Motivation and Joy)
The 2016-17 school year is off to a great start! Our entire faculty and staff enjoyed great fun and fellowship with our Opening Day game shows! That first gathering of the school year is one of the few opportunities, we as faculty and staff of this entire district can get together, to meet new members of our Graves County Schools family and to celebrate!
We celebrate our team of professionals, our work, student learning, and ultimately those students we are helping prepare for adult life! After all, our main goal as a school district is growing kids!
Within the first couple of weeks of school starting, we’ve had a visit to Sedalia Elementary and Graves County High School from Lt. Gov. Jenean Hampton. Gov. Matt Bevin has honored the Farmington Church of Christ for their support of Farmington Elementary School. And many other wonderful things have happened to make it a great start to what I’m expecting to be a tremendous school year!
Thanks for all you have done and for all you will do this year for our students in Graves County! As I said, we’re growing kids! That’s important, challenging, and rewarding work! Enjoy it and know that you’re making a valuable difference in children’s lives!
Graves County Schools
In the Graves County School District, we believe:
All students can learn and rise to our expectations.
Everything we do should be student-centered.
Teachers influence learning more than any other factor.
Students learn more when authentically engaged.
As a team, schools, parents and communities help students reach their highest potential.
