Superintendent Message:

Happy Monday,

The fall sports season at the MS is coming to an end this week, while Winter 1 gets ready to start next week. Doesn't seem possible that we can be that far into school already.

We had a great board workshop on Friday and have a board meeting tonight. We will be missing two board members for the meeting tonight as they have conflicts that could not be rearranged. I will be in meetings a lot this week and will be out of the office and unavailable even by cell phone most of the day Thursday.

We will be beginning a transition of our website soon along with our home calling system, as both of our contracts for those services are coming up in the next few months. Stay tuned for more info on that front!

Have a great rest of the week and feel free to reach out at ext. 2001 or at 308-5052!

- Pete

I was an Assistant Principal for programs such as Spectrum Bilingual, Bilingual, Bridges, Dual both one-way and two-way, LifeSkills, Self-Contained classroom, Resource Room and general education.
