Some teachers have reached out to parents and have started small group tutoring after school. We are using ESSER III money earmarked for student achievement to pay for tutoring services. We can offer up to 550 hours of tutoring over the next two years.


Our food service audit is scheduled to begin in March 2023. Kelly and Tiffany are currently working on audit preparations. Once completed, it will be presented to the board for approval.

We continue to experience some supply chain issues with some of our food and product deliveries.


I have met with custodial staff and maintenance staff and have developed a list of projects to be completed over the winter break. The facilities look great and the district has received numerous comments from community patrons.

I have a meeting scheduled in the next few weeks to meet with Tim Corry from SIC Midwest (Superior Industrial Coatings) to come in and take a look at our gym roof.  This company specializes in metal gym roofing.



The Veterans Day assembly, in conjunction with PTO, had a great turnout and the ceremony and celebration were very well organized. Those involved with planning this event did a tremendous job honoring our veterans.

Community Day was held for the first time since November 2019. It was nice having visitors back in the building. A big THANK YOU to Kelly and Tiffany for preparing and serving the meal for this event.

The Christmas Program was held on December 8, 2022, for the first time since December 2019. It was an amazing program and Mrs. Block and her students did a fabulous job.


Lone Jack reached out to see if we would like to CO-OP 7th & 8th Grade Girls and Boys Wrestling. This would take place after our basketball season. Coach Clark is currently working on this co-op and will probably bring it to the board in January for approval.

Based on our CSIP survey results we will be exploring options for intramural basketball/volleyball for elementary grades moving forward.


After speaking with the Department of Health and Senior Services, it looks like our water testing samples will be accepted. There will be no need to make faucet replacements moving forward. I will still need to write a plan this summer that highlights our testing and reporting procedures moving forward.
