The times we live in are stressful, no doubt about it. We each carry heavy burdens that seem to get heavier each day.  Some are too difficult to ignore, or escape from.  Losing a loved one, failing a test, bad news at the Doctor’s office, Bullies, Illness, Broken hearts, the list goes on.  Sometimes the unexpected accident or crazy experience is more than we can bear.  Some stresses weigh more than others, and it seems like each week we become weaker.  We’re not only running faster than we have strength, we feel like we’re running in the wrong direction!  We desperately desire even a piece of peace, but seem to find only tiny crumbs of comfort.  How then shall we go on?  Where shall we go to renew our strength and restore our courage to keep pressing forward even in the very depths of our adversities?

In the world of high stakes, testing in education and minimal budgets combined with the pressure and expectations of success in public education often taint the views and perceptions of people looking in on the profession.  The administration of Morgan School District wishes to acknowledge our teachers and coaching staff for the time, effort, and energy spent in preparing our students in the classroom and our athletes for competition. Advisors and coaches work with students on a daily basis and make decisions ranging from team selection to playing time.  Administrators make every effort to support the students in all of the programs offered by the district. We support our leaders as they teach lessons about how to accomplish tasks correctly.  Administrators support teachers and advisors as they emphasize the teaching of life lessons in preparation for the challenging and competitive world. Our advisors encourage students to win correctly and to lose with dignity. Our teachers and coaching staffs do a remarkable job with the talent of our students and the opposition they face in region and state competitions.

On Monday night Sept. 12, 2011, there was a bear sighting in the Mountain Green Neighborhood of Monte Verde. It was around 10:30 P.M. when the sighting of the black bear occurred. One of the home owner’s goats was killed by the bear. The homeowner went out and shot at the bear as the bear was trying to go for his other goat. The bullet hit the bear, but the bear wandered off, wounded up into the hills. Wildlife management is still in search of the bear as it’s still on the loose. If you see any sightings of the bear please report to the local authorities.
