There will be a public hearing at the December 18th School Board Meeting at 5:00pm for the proposed 2018-2019 School Calendar.
Mrs. Ziegler and I attended the capital conference along with two board members last week. We were able to sit in on multiple sessions where we heard information about a variety of topics. Whether it was building projects, communicating with the public, upcoming legislation or others, I think it was a worthwhile experience.
Thank you to Bryan Miller and our MS staff for putting together the Veteran’s Day recognition. Our students who presented did an excellent job as well. There was a great turnout of veterans and I know they appreciate that program as we receive a lot of positive comments. Most of all thank you to our veterans!
On December 7, we will have our next scheduled two-hour delay for staff development. We asked our staff to complete a survey to see what their feedback was and how we can improve upon the last meeting. We took this information and we are offering six options and also time for people to create or put into practice what they learn.
Thank you to everyone who came out to support our DQ event last week. It is great to have these community partners who help our district. We learned that our pizza night with Marco’s raised $573 and that is awesome. When I have the information from Dairy Queen I will share that with the public and the board as well.
Congratulations to all of our fall sports teams and coaches. It was an outstanding season for our young people with multiple championships and state placers. We are proud of their hard work and accomplishments!
