Superintendent's Message

To our families and community members, we cannot thank you enough for your support and commitment to Barnwell School District 45 thus far in the 2018-2019 school year! I have said it before, and I will say it again—I am so honored and proud to have the opportunity to serve this community and our school system!

As we have navigated through the first several months of the 2018-2019 school year, I have been filled with such pride for the accomplishments of our students and staff.  When our BHS Warhorses made it to the State Championship for football, it was evident that Warhorse Pride runs deep throughout our community. I remember driving to work one morning the week of the big game and seeing store windows, store signs, and numerous messages reminding our players we were behind them— win or lose. It is that sense of family and support that makes our district so unique!

During the holiday season, I was overwhelmed by the talent displayed by our students, from the primary school to the high school. I hope you were able to attend one of the many chorus and band concerts or holiday  performances that were exceptional displays of the hard work of so many dedicated leaders, students, and their families. We are so fortunate to have such an amazing community and supportive group of parents.

Crissie Stapleton
Superintendent, Barnwell School District 45
