View the 11/1/2023 Weekly Update from the Superintendent


Dear students, staff, families and community, 

Thank you to our Veterans who have served and are currently serving in our armed forces.  We appreciate your service and dedication.  Our freedom and the opportunities we have throughout the United States is due to your bravery. Our schools will be honoring Veterans Day on Thursday, November 9 with assemblies and activities involving tributes to the service of Veterans.

Our FFA Ag Team placed 16th in the Nation! Drake Pinkey was gold and high individual in the nation for the Environmental Natural Resources portion of the contest.  Kelsi Anderson, Case Heutink, and Merrick Kelley were all silvers.  We also were one of the top 15 teams for Welding!  Congratulations to our FFA members and advisors!

Each elementary school will be hosting a Budget Information and Listening Session next week.  Community members can attend in person or virtually through a Zoom Webinar.  Here is a link for questions, comments, and feedback.  Here are links for anyone who wants to attend via Zoom.

We will use the information gathered to develop an FAQ document to share with everyone.  The information will also be shared with a Finance Work Group to study as we move forward with a process to identify necessary reductions.  Thanks in advance for participating in this process!
