Thank you!
    On Tuesday, November 4, voters approved
    Referendum II.

    Ballot Box

    On behalf of the Board and Administration I would like to thank everyone for their support with the successful passing of Referendum II yesterday. I am pleased to announce that henceforth it now becomes and will be referred to as the Construction Project Phase II. In the next couple of weeks I will be meeting with the administrative team, the architects, and the construction manager to craft the construction plan going forward. It is my plan to keep the staff, students, parents and community members informed well ahead of time on what can be expected as the project progresses. Once we complete our forecasts I will meet with the staff at each school at an upcoming faculty meeting to share what can we can expect to see happening and when they will be happening in each building.  I will also be sharing this information with our students, parents and community members via our social media sites.


    As I have mentioned before, undergoing a building renovation project presents us with many challenges and we will be called upon to “improvise, adapt and overcome”. Patience, forbearance, and flexibility will be needed by all so that we can achieve our end which is renovated, modernized, 21st standard, 100 and 60 yr. old buildings. I look forward to working with all of you in this endeavor.


    Tom Coleman
