We hope you had a joyous Holiday Season from the Board of Trustees ... Committed to providing an Outstanding Education to our Students with the Support of our Community!
Superintendent's Message... Superintendent's Message… We are nearing the midpoint of the 2016-2017 school year and there seems to be no shortage of activity. There are lights on across the district as concerts, athletic events, trade fairs and a host of other activities are happening each evening. The cold weather has not seemed to dampen the energy of the events that I have had the good fortune to attend. Each year I marvel at the amazing talent and great work that our staﬀ does with our students. Winter seems to bring out some of the best performances of the year. Winter also marks the second session of our Community Education program. Our Community Education program coordinator Tiﬀany Olsen, works hard to put together many quality and diverse course oﬀerings. We hope that you will ﬁnd something that piques your interest and encourages you to try a new skill or perhaps take a refresher course on a hobby that you have not had time for in recent years. Either way, we would welcome you to sign up this winter and take part in one or several course oﬀerings. As we approach the end of the calendar year, I like to spend time reﬂecting on the past year. There is so much that I have to be thankful for each and every day. It is a privilege to work in a school district that has such great community support. It really is a partnership between community and school district that creates great opportunity for students. Thank you so much and Go Blue Ponies!
