I was unable to attend the last school board meeting, so I do not have my own update. Thankfully, the meeting did not cover any big or new issues; here is our Communication Consultant Meg Krsacok’s summary of the meeting, which will give you a great idea of what happened.

Also, you can always watch the full meeting on cable or the Internet – Meg lists the info in her summary.

 

New elementary construction is coming along!

The new Boyd E. Smith & Charles L. Seipelt Elementary schools are coming along on schedule. This month, staff got the chance to walk through the buildings as they begin to dream about their new space and plan for move in this coming August!

I was not able to attend the Boyd tour, but here are photos of Seipelt. Since the two schools are identical and inside decor is not yet done, these will give a good idea of what Boyd looks like as well.

Exciting to see them coming together, and to see the great features our students and staff will enjoy!

This money includes both state funds as well as your own local taxes. Continue reading
