May 3, 2011 Election/Bond Vote

Nick Ceglarek & Art Bolt reviewed the Bond Proposal for the Bond Vote scheduled for May 3, 2011.    This plan is based on a 5-year projection for growth.  Proposal includes:

  • New 9+ building next to the current High School.
  • This building could sustain as its “own” high school in the future, but we are not there yet.
  • New South Elem. Building off of Greenly
  • New Competition Pool & Fine Arts Center
  • New Transportation Facility
  • Current Freshman Campus to become an Early Childhood Center
  • Tech. Upgrades
  • Upgrades to Athletic Facilities

No MIL increase with this proposal – 7MIL rate stays the same

May 3 Bond/Election Ballot Items:

  • Operating Millage Renew-Need a YES
  • Bond Proposal Request- Need a YES
  • School Board Members

Occupancy Time:

  • New South Building:  Fall 2013
  • New 9+ Building:  Fall 2014/2015
  • ECC Building:  Fall 2015

There is serious concern with the Governor’s proposed budget cuts for K-12.  This proposal would put our district into possible crisis mode.  A call was put out to contact our Representatives today!  If you are interested in finding out about these issues, please visit:

The contest is sponsored by the International Reading Association and Parents Magazine.

Beginning March 8, students log their reading minutes as they devour books throughout the spring.  Logging of minutes continues through May 31.

We need every parent to register for this program and log in their minutes from home.  We will also record the minutes read at school.

On March 8, go to this link and register:  RAISE A READER SCHOOL CHALLENGE

If you have questions at any time, check with Mrs. VandenBerg, our school librarian, or your child’s teacher.

Thank you for doing such a great job to raise your child to be a reader and for supporting our school library!
