Flu Prevention Letter 2014
Thank You for Your Service

Our December 8 school board meeting was a bittersweet one as we celebrated, thanked and said good-bye to three members that will be completing their terms at the end of this month.

Bob Altmann (four years), Amber Seaver (four years), and Henry Endres (thirteen years) were showered with praise for their service to the district by former superintendent Dave Johnson and ten past school board members during an emotional tribute.

These individuals dedicated countless volunteer hours to ensure that our students are guaranteed the best possible education this district can provide.

One-by-one, the past members stepped up to the podium and shared their appreciation for the retiring board members’ ability to listen and work together. We are better because of their service.

Not many community members realize the great commitment required to serve as a school board member. Preparation and attendance at the two monthly meetings a month is only the beginning.

Board members also serve on standing board committees such as finance, human resources and policy. Ongoing professional development and training for board members is another expectation.
