For the last few weeks the faculty, staff, and students have been planning surprises for our four retirees, but particularly for this man here... our principal, Mr Doyne Byrd. So last week we strung up balloons with notes attached, written by every student and employee in our middle school and high school, and filled his office. It was a team effort and we worked hard, only to be caught red-handed by Mr Byrd upon his early return from a meeting! As usual, we can't pull the wool over his eyes! We will sure miss you, Mr Byrd!
