The construction phase of the seismic upgrade to the main building will begin on Monday, June 5. Only the front office staff will be in the main building during the week of June 5. After that the office staff will be working out of the elementary wing for the remainder of the summer. The main floor of the school will be accessible during the weekend of the Centennial Celebration/Mosquito Festival (July 28-29). We will keep you updated on progress throughout the summer via our website and Paisley School Activities Page on Facebook.

I want to recognize someone from our Bronco family who is retiring after 32 years of service to our district. Debbie Williams has been a valuable employee who has dedicated her entire professional life to the students and families of Paisley. I wish her nothing but the best in her retirement journey. THANK YOU DEBBIE!

On Saturday, June 3, we will be recognizing our seniors as they graduate and move on to the next phase of life. Congratulations to Makaylah, Boz, Kate, Eduardo, Adam, Tyler, Wyatt, Skylar, Bacon, and John on a job well done. I have enjoyed working with each and every one of you. You have all made such a positive impact on our school. Good luck in all your future endeavors.

Finally, I want to express my sincere thanks to the Paisley community for your support. I have been honored to serve as your superintendent for the past four years. A special thank you to the teachers, classified staff, school board, volunteers, and everyone else associated with the school district in any way. You are a special group. And to the students of Paisley- “It has been my pleasure”.
