We remain to be a very safe school system
We have risen significantly on the state level in salaries (helps attract and retain the best staff)
We are competitive at the state level in extracurricular activities
We have amazing facilities, the most incredible teachers, principals, and administrators
And we are blessed with many wonderful students and families
I want to continue to be a part of this! It is a pleasure to serve my community in this capacity. There is still more to do and I want to be a guiding part of our future.
