I have learned a lot siting on the board over the last 8 years. It is very important that we work well together as a board and we work well with the administration. We have been blessed to have that good working relationship over the last 8 years that I have been involved. We have good discussions with our focus on providing what we can to our students that attend our school. We have a good school board that strives to work together. This makes it enjoyable.
We are blessed with a culture that promotes students interacting with other students with different interests. At events I attend and I am involved in, I see a strong interaction between the students across competing teams and groups. The students like having friends with different interests and learning about different things. They support each other. The teachers work hard at preparing the students for life. The Administrations works hard at providing teachers with the tools they need to do their job while also doing the best they can with the money we have.
