Why Are We Here and What Do We Hope To Accomplish?

Every Wednesday afternoon, from 2:45 pm to 3:45 pm, Mt. Loafer teachers come together to think about how to best act on behalf of Mt. Loafer students.  Teachers look at student work, evaluate their lessons, and aren't content until every area of where students aren’t doing well is erased and we are helping all students really be successful.  Watch Mt. Loafer teachers in action and making academic decisions on behalf of our students!

Happy Birthday Landon Clarke Hughes!

On September 21st, 1998 a healthy baby boy was born to Alan and Dayna Hughes.  The Hughes' had been married for 15 years, and, unable to have any children of their own, had already adopted two beautiful girls, Lauren and Mallory.  But, without warning, Landon died in an unfortunate drowning accident.  Dayna and Alan wondered how they could honor their son and keep his memory alive.  They decided to set up a special place in their daughters' school library where children could come to read and relax, and where the love of reading and learning would be encouraged.
