New School Year Underway


With bright smiles and new school supplies in hand, district students and staff officially started the 2016-2017 school year on Sept. 6.

From the youngest scholars, who arrived aboard yellow school buses to start their academic journey, to the seniors who began their final months of study, the year was off to a great start in the district’s eight school buildings as students quickly settled into their new routines.

Several new initiatives will be introduced in the district this year, including an expanded computer science program and supporting writing centers at the junior high school level, as well as new high school business electives.

The district is looking forward to a successful year ahead, working with the community’s young scholars and nation’s future leaders.
