Where did summer go? I thought I caught a glimpse of it about two weeks ago and then it disappeared again. I was hoping to get a couple more home improvement projects done, but it’s always exciting to get back to school. It’s especially so when I see students in the halls during band camp and athletic training.
We will have a new History teacher with us this year. Kory Williamson has entered the PDC Program at USD to work on his masters degree, so he will be doing some team teaching with John Silvernail who will be filling in for him this year. Mr. Silvernail is a USD graduate. Mr. Williamson will be back full time next year a much wiser person.
We would also like to welcome Steve Kruse as the district’s new integrationist. An integrationist is an individual that helps teachers be more effective in using technology. Mr. Kruse will be taking over for Jordan Braa, and he will be in charge of our one-to-one computer program here in the high school. Look for some changes in our computer program this year. Specifics will be given to students and parents at the Fall Fling and Senior Experience.
We will be hosting our Fall Fling for our freshman and sophomore students and parents on Thursday, August 8, from 6:00-9:00 PM. We have changed the time and date to try to accommodate busy schedules. Our Junior-Senior experience for students and parents will be Friday, August 9, from 6:00-9:00 PM. I will be sending out a letter to parents with more specific details prior to these events.
Make to most of what is left of summer. We will see you in August.
