Preparing For Summer

Later this week I will be sharing a memorandum from our district Custodial/Maintenance Services Management team about summer cleaning expectations. I will also share a FAQ sheet I have developed that explains and answers specific questions about preparing for the summer that have come up in previous years. Rice Lake is hosting Kidstop summer programming from June 13-August 26, 2016.

Career Fair

Thank you to Amy Paton for planning, coordinating, and executing an amazing Career Fair for our 5th graders. The number and variety of guests was outstanding! Thank you to those of you who recruited friends and family members to be part of this event. Recognize anyone in these photos?


I have been interviewing candidates for four positions I hope to fill before the school year is finished. I am interviewing candidates for a 5th grade classroom teacher, a special education resource teacher, a half-time EL teacher, and a 0.3 speech teacher. My goal is to fill those positions before the end of this school year.
