A Message from Superintendent, Dave Peden
Our last full month of the school year is here and we are celebrating what has been a great year. We are also preparing to say goodbye to the Class of 2013, one of the best classes I have been associated with in the past 38 years.
A quality district has top notch leaders and that includes student leaders. This class has provided that leadership and we say thank you and best wishes.
We are busy now almost every night of the week and hope that families get a chance to rest a little over Memorial Day weekend; but of course there are activities then as well, especially for our band students.
Our time will be filled in replacing leaders like Mark Platt from Churchill Elementary who is leaving at the end of June to become the new superintendent of Hart Public Schools. Feel free to stop in and see Mark before he leaves to wish him well.
Another area of focus right now is our budget and we will present a balanced budget to the Board of Education in June as required by law. It looks like the State has some additional revenue and if they decide to spend that money on other areas, I guess we will know where K-12 education stands on their priority list.
A lot has happened this year and I will be available to discuss any concerns you may have or answer any questions on Wednesday, May 29 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. in my office at Ross Park Elementary.
