The end of the school year is quickly approaching. The district has been working hard this year to keep the work done by the Strategic Community Planning Committee a focus. An informational session will be held on May 2nd at 6:00 p.m. in the Intermediate cafeteria to update the community on our progress. Each building in the district will have a representative report on the 5 strategic areas they have been working on and changes made according to the committee action plans. We appreciate all the hard work our teachers, community members, parents and staff have put into this school year. Please, join us on May 2nd to celebrate all the positive things the Strategic Plan has brought to our district and give us feedback as we work to improve and plan for the 2019-2020 school year.
