In Our Own Words

For In Our Own Words this week, say hello to Neyo, a Lake Shore Elementary student. Neyo loves math and proudly stood in front of the whiteboard with math work on it for this picture!

We're also pleased to introduce Daisy from Thomas Jefferson Middle School.

Dr. Snell shares, "Each week I'm so impressed with each of our students and how kind and thoughtful they are."

District Calendar 2022-2023

Due to school closures on February 23 and 24, our snow makeup days will be June 16 and 20, with the last day of school on June 20. This plan could change if there are additional snow days.

Debido al cierre de las escuelas el 23 y 24 de febrero, los días perdidos debido a la nieve se recuperarán el 16 y 20 de junio, el último día de clases sería el 20 de junio. Este plan podría cambiar si hay días de nieve adicionales.

В связи с тем, что 23 и 24 февраля школы были закрыты, 16 и 20 июня будут учебными днями взамен пропущенных "снежных" дней. Этот план может измениться, если у нас будут дополнительные снежные дни.
