NEWS & NOTES December 15, 2022
Winter break is here! Thank you for all of your hard work these past three months. I wish you all a great holiday season, and I hope you can rest, relax, and celebrate with your loved ones.
Please take care over the next two weeks so we can return in the new year better than ever for ourselves and our students.
On another note, Kira Acker and I have completed our financial presentations at each school building. If you missed this presentation or want to learn more, watch the recording below from the December 8th Board Meeting. When we return from break, we will provide staff with a list of our school district's legislative priorities. We invite you to review these priorities and have talking points if you want to reach out to our legislators.
