In the University of Arkansas OEP report released Wednesday, March 15, J.D. Leftwich High School received two awards:

Statewide:
Math Beating the Odds

Regional:

Congratulations to all of our staff and students for this outstanding achievement!

District - Welcome Message

A letter from the desk of the superintendent......

 

Welcome to the 2015 – 2016 school year!! I’ve been given the honor and the privilege of leading the district into a new chapter in the history of our proud school. The start of a new school year is always exciting and full of anticipation for students, parents, and educators. We have worked diligently to prepare for this year for each of our students.

We are approaching this year with a renewed commitment to providing our students with a quality education with our focus on impacting student achievement. Our educators are committed to helping every student unlock their potential and become successful. We must continue to work hand-n-hand with parents to ensure the growth and success of our students. It’s this partnership with parents that makes our school strong and the community proud of what our students achieve. Our school district excels because of this collective effort, focus and commitment.

As I enter my first year here at Magazine I am humbled and honored to serve our students, parents, educators, and community, sharing a common vision of providing the best educational experience possible for the children that attend our schools. I firmly believe with all of us working together our students will excel and our community will see the benefits. I look forward to the work we will accomplish this year.

I want to thank all of you for the many ways in which you help make this school district a wonderful place for students to grow and learn. Thank you for your support and commitment to the pursuit of excellence.

 

Brett Bunch

Superintendent
