A Message from Dr. Hanson, Superintendent

The purpose of the Town Hall meetings is to provide our community, including our staff, the opportunity to interact with the district to provide input on the future of Warren Schools for our 2020-2025 Strategic Plan. It is our goal to develop a comprehensive plan that will ensure all students and staff have the conditions necessary to develop and apply the Journey of a Graduate skills and dispositions. The Journey of a Graduate skills are a set of 6 skills and dispositions that have been identified by our community needed for success in and out of school.


Below are the dates and times of the upcoming Town Hall Meetings. I have also included the survey we are providing as another way to collect our community's input. If you have not completed the survey, I would greatly appreciate your input.

Apple Days

Last week we were fortunate to have Dr. K with us from Apple Education to help us learn new tricks and brave new learning. It was so much fun! Our students and staff experienced creative and engaging lessons as well as came up with new things on their own, too! We look forward to continuing our work with Dr. K. and the Apple Team as we spread our wings in technology.
