Notes from the Superintendent’s Desk

While it is difficult to believe, planning for the new school year is nearer than a person might believe.  Registration is set for Thursday, August 10, from 9:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. at the MS in Rockwell City.  The first day of school is scheduled for Thursday, August 24, for students. 

During the summer many projects are completed in preparation for the new school year.  New staff members are hired, the buildings and grounds are cleaned and painted with a facelift to some areas, and technology is improved.  One of the largest investments for improvements included updates to the parking lot and concession areas at the high school. 

The board continues to gather input on facility improvements.  Starting this fall, community members will be given an opportunity to complete a survey to gain input.  Meetings will be scheduled with various community organizations to share the message of current needs in the district.  Within the next few months, the board will establish a timeline to move forward with much needed improvements to our buildings.

SCC has added the following new teachers:  Paula Ahlrich, Pre-school teacher; Jamie Bartels, Elem. Teacher; Hilary Boogerd, MS Music; Melissa Fahr, MS math; Rhonda Harrington, Spanish; Sara Hoppenworth, Elem. Guidance; Kara Kraft, TK teacher; Bailey Landgraf, MS teacher; and Amy Maguire, Special Education teacher.  Please make them feel welcomed to the district!
