The old Gene Autry song, sung be Roy Rogers, has always been one of my favorites. Titled "Happy Trails to You" the song has a great message fitting for this post. Happy trails to you, until we meet again. Happy trails to you, keep smiling until then.... some trails are happy trails, others are blue. It's the way you ride the trail that counts, here's a happy one for YOU! Thank you for the honor and privilege of serving the Addison Community. We have made much progress together, yet I look for even greater things from this school and community in the future. My heart, eyes and ears will be watching and listening.
On Monday, December 1, 2012, your new Principal, Susan Hallmark, will be joining you. Mrs. Hallmark is full of passion and excitement about this, her first Principalship. She has been serving as Assistant Principal at Still Elementary. Prior to that she has been an area lead teacher for Cobb County as well as a classroom teacher at Vaughan Elementary. She has taught eighth grade math and pre-algebra at North Augusta Junior High as well as being a sixth grade teacher in Cumming, Georgia. She was the Vaughn Teacher of the Year in 2008-09 as well as in 2001-02. It does concern me that she is an Auburn grad, but once on board, that Addison Alligator spirit will dispel all that other orangish color, I am sure.
Make your trails happy - it is YOUR choice. Ride them well! May our trails cross again...fondly,
Karen C. Crowder
