Great big thanks to McGavock Elementary Principal Lance Forman for his dedication to all the students, teachers, and staff. He has been a wonderful Principal at the school and has now accepted a new opportunity as Principal of the brand new Smith Springs Elementary School Congratulations to Lance and we wish him well! I’m excited that Jason Taylor has been named the new Principal at McGavock Elementary I had the pleasure of getting to know Jason when Joey attended Dodson. He will be a great leader for the school. Congratulations and welcome, Jason!
One recent piece of news at Metro Nashville Public Schools was a fundamental change for match instruction at the high school level. Read about the change to “Integrated Math” in the MNPS Children First blog post here.
Parents, are you starting to look towards summer camp opportunities? If your child plays an instrument, Blues Kids Camp is coming to Music City Over the past year, I’ve been working with Fernando Jones, a performer and teacher at Columbia College in Chicago, who has created these camps in seven U.S. cities, London and Italy. He’s been doing this for over 25 years and the best part is that it’s free for kids ages 12-18. It will be held during the week of July 5th and primarily at Tennessee State University, but one day will be spent at The Larry Keeton Theater. See the website for more details and to sign up.
