Community Meetings.  We will be holding community meetings again this year to share information on: enrollment trends, academic achievement, and the financial position of the district.  Myself and at least one school board member will be in each of the following meetings:

November 2nd, 7:00 PM Trinity Lutheran Church, Persia
November 5th, 7:00 PM St. Pat’s Hall, Neola
November 17th, 7:00 PM St. John’s Lutheran Church, Honey Creek
