Fall Parent-Teacher Conferences.  Parent-Teacher Conferences are going to be held Tuesday, October 6th and Wednesday, October 7th due to a scheduling conflict on October 8th.  School will be dismissed at 1:30 on the 6th and 7th, with conferences being held from 4:00 to 8:00 both nights.  Elementary conferences will be scheduled by classroom teachers; secondary conferences will be held in the cafetorium.  Thursday, October 8th will be a full day of school, and there will be no school Friday, October 9th.  

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
