A Letter from your Administrator
Dear Parents and Students,
I am excited and honored to welcome you back to a year of greatness as a 2018-2019 Paxton Bobcat. It is my deepest desire to see each student feel and experience the pride of being a part of our school's rich heritage and infinite possibilities for the future. It is our responsibility to ensure all students are prepared, both academically and socially, to be a successful and contributing member of society. With this shared purpose and teamwork from a passionate and professional staff, a motivated and respectful student body, an active family and community support system, greatness in academics, athletics, and social relationships can and will be acheived.
New federal law known as the Every Student Succeeds Act states chronic absenteeism is a major factor in the lack of student success nationwide. According to federal data published last year, students missing more than 15 days of school per year are considered chronically absent and perform below their peers academically. Each class is important. Some students, however, habitually check out and miss certain classes. I want all students to be successful and graduate on time. Let's work together to address chronic absenteeism to ensure our students have every opportunity to meet their academic goals.
Mr. Jackson and I are looking forward to being a part of your educational experience this year. We are here to support you and provide a safe and welcoming family environment where learning is fun and engaging. Let's work together to make 2018-2019 another year filled with pride, passion, and purpose in EPIC proportions through excellence, professionalism, innovation, and collaboration.
Cindy Neale, Principal
