Happy New Year! The 2014-15 School Year is fully underway. Students excitedly arrived on September 2nd to be greeted by their smiling and highly qualified teachers, 83 of whom are new to our district. Our support staff worked throughout the summer to have our buildings prepared and ready to go. We added 10 new classrooms to our elementary campuses along with new teachers to go with them in order to address the reduction of class size at the Kindergarten and 1st grade levels. The office area at Collins Elementary was updated and reconfigured this summer to enhance efficiency and office staff line of sight that will improve the safety of the building. High tech learning walls were added to the second four elementary schools (Christensen, Collins, Harvard & Midland). The Keithley Middle School cafeteria renovation is getting closer to completion and looks fantastic.
