Superintendent Jaszczak talked about the school year going well so far. Recently there was a speaker who presented “Be the Nice Kid”. He spoke to all age groups throughout the day. The students were very engaged and enjoyed it. There will be streaming of regular season football games. The school cannot stream playoff games per the MSHSL. He has us on a list for a new bus. The wait time for a new school bus is one to two years depending on the configuration of the bus. Mrs. Cadieux took her class to the water festival yesterday and there is a corn maze field trip next week for the elementary. The mic system got on update in the auditorium for streaming, which should help immensely. Grandparents’ Day is Friday. Asked for any board members that were available to assist with grilling. The Dallas Brass will return March 24th. Possible online ticket sales.
Next meeting is October 25th, at 5pm
