District Update 12-6-11

Date Subject Posted by:
12/06/2011 I enjoy these updates. I especially appreciated the updates from each of the buildings and all of the success stories from the students, leadership initiatives, etc. As a community our attention is drawn too easily to negative news, so we certainly need to hear about all of the very positive things going on in our district.
