• Dear Stakeholders, 


    It is exciting for me to share that we had a very successful beginning to the school year! It was very satisfying to see the planning efforts of the building principals and maintenance workers come to fruition for such an important day. As the school year evolves, please feel free to work directly with your children's principal, or my office, to ensure the best learning opportunities possible for your students. Successful students come from successful parent/school partnerships. 


    Best wishes for a successful school year! 



    Jim Nygaard

    Superintendent of Schools
