The Chip Shoppe Fundraiser for the Elementary will start on August 28th. The district Facebook page has launched. The page will help with getting more of the great news out. The Boiler inspection is scheduled for August 30th. Grandparents Day will be Friday, September 7th at 2:00 p.m. Due to communication and safety concerns, the junior high football team will rotate where practices are held.

If they feel it can be done cheaper let us know. I would like to see the plan on how we are going to do better than before with the testing. I want to make sure we are shopping around and getting the best cost. I had a citizen contact me regarding a concern about the parking adjustments.
