Superintendent Communication: September 15, 2023
This week, families were invited to their children’s schools to meet staff, learn about school activities and more. The high school’s GrizzFest featured a wide range of activities and groups, including teachers ready to meet families, clubs displaying their offerings, Pathways showcasing their coursework, community groups highlighting their services to families and a college/career section to get students thinking about life after high school.
