Board News

Due to recent changes in our administration team, the school board has asked Kim Baum to stay on after finishing her term on the Board. She has agreed to help us through this transition time and then will step down.  At that time the board will appoint someone to complete the term. Kim has had past experience on the board hiring new administration and her knowledge and involvement will be extremely valuable to us.
