LSH will be on KNUJ radio tomorrow, Thursday, November 20th!!  KNUJ is running a local education series as part of American Education Week.  Our first interview will be aired at 10:25am tomorrow morning.  This segment highlights our Teacher Growth and Evaluation Program with interviews by Middle School teacher Melissa Hollnagel and Park Principal Bill Bjorndahl.  Tune-in to KNUJ 860AM or you can listen live at:

Two weeks ago, our community elected three new members and one incumbent to serve on the Le Sueur - Henderson School Board. 

Brian Wiederich, Andrea Faches, and Terry Spence will be sworn in as new school board members at our annual organizational meeting January 5. Bill Floyd will begin his second term.

We appreciate the willingness of these people to serve our school district. 

The four-year commitment is not a small one. We will ask much of them as we partner together to lead our district into the future.

To give you an idea of their willingness to serve and learn how to be an effective school board member, these individuals will hit the ground running at an all-day training and orientation session Saturday, November 22, led by Dennis Cheesebrow of Team Works International. Joining them will be our continuing board members and administrative team.

Topics covered will include a look at our school district as an organization and how it is designed. We will examine how our board is based on governance, not management. We will review our strategic plan and how it was developed. We will also look to the future and discuss our committee structure.
