Notes from the Superintendent’s Desk

Another busy summer is nearing completion by staff to prepare the district for a productive school year.  Summer projects never go away as remodeling and improving the buildings/grounds, technology, and transportation departments take shape during the summer.  I hope you will take a few moments to thank staff members who have worked hard in preparation for the 2019-20 school year.

The 2019-20 school year officially begins on Tuesday, August 20, with in-service for staff.  Open house for the SCC elementary and the SCC MS is scheduled from 5:00-6:15 p.m. on Thursday, August 22.  The first student day for school is Friday, August 23; this is the first legal date school can begin because of legislation. 

SCC has currently added the following new staff members:  Teachers - Wanda Bruxvoort-Elem Title I, Brady Dicks-HS Business, Laura Franzmeier-Elem Special Ed, Brandon Hersom-Elem PE, and Jill McGinty Dawson-MS Math; Support Staff - Megan Jondle-Elem & MS Nurse, Randall Kent-HS Associate, Josie Knouf-Elem Associate, Kyle Lenz, Kerri Martinez-Elem. Associate, Cathy Russom-HS Associate, Katelyn Sander-Elem Associate, and Sue Stickrod-Elem. Associate.

The HS locker room remodeling project should be complete by the time school begins.  At the elementary building most of the preparatory ground work has been completed and the gym walls are scheduled to be installed in early August.  A technology infrastructure upgrade is being completed at the buildings in Rockwell City using E-rate funding.
