CELEBRATE SCHOOL ATTENDANCE. September is Attendance Awareness Month and a good time to remind students and families of the importance of regular attendance. Regularly attending school is foundational for student success, starting as early as preschool or kindergarten. Attending school regularly helps children to thrive academically, build relationships, feel safe and connected, and feel supported with their mental well-being.
We miss the students when they are not here.
WEBSITE REDESIGN. The District is excited to announce the redesign of our district website. The new and improved website has a cleaner, more attractive design and prioritizes the most frequently used content. Our district strives to make information about our school district accessible to all members of our school community. Pardon our dust as we are finalizing this transition.
APPLICANTS WANTED. The DEIB Committee has a few spots open this fall for parents/guardians interested in furthering the work the Committee has started. Our district continues focusing on Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging (DEIB). As part of this work, we have a DEIB Steering Committee whose current membership includes school and district leadership, staff, parents, and guardians (of currently enrolled students in our district), and board members. If you are interested in applying to be a part of this group, please contact the Director of Curriculum & Instruction, Alex Friel, at firstname.lastname@example.org
