This week’s shoutout is to all of you working so hard to prepare our students for upcoming tests. I want to encourage each of you during what I know is a hard push in the coming weeks not only because of testing, but also as we motivate ourselves to be great, inspiring leaders for our kids during the final nine weeks. Remember that when you are tired, our kids are too. Remember that when you are frustrated, they probably are too. If you reach a road block, go back and explore your Social Contracts or take some time to give out a student affirmation to every single one of your kids. I know you have so much on your plate, but I also know that you all are doing amazing work. I am proud of each of you, and I am proud of the work and progress that we have accomplished at every school. Those tests are important - yes, but what is most important is the relationships that you have built with our students and the memorable impact that your professional expertise as an educator has made on the kids in this district. Keep working hard, and hang in there!


In other encouraging news - I want to give you a shout out for being part of a more successful educational system as a whole in Arkansas! The Arkansas Department of Education announced today that Arkansas’s four-year graduation rate has increased for a third year in a row - for all students, across ethnicities. We at HSSD are part of that success! Congrats!  See the full release, here.


I also want to share an anonymous shoutout to our Jr. High Lady Trojans Track Team, “Jr. High Lady Trojans Track team for placing 2nd in the Sylvan Hills Track Meet on Tuesday 3/26/19! This is out of 14 teams.”


Trojan ‘Good Things’ is a weekly shout out from #HSSD Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Nehus to individuals in our school community who are doing amazing things!
