We are very excited to start the new school year! We have worked hard to improve the learning environments around the district and are excited for students, families and staff to get in to them. I want to thank the maintenance supervisor and all the custodians and summer helpers for getting our buildings in tiptop shape. I also want to thank our transportation department for all their hard work in getting the buses and routes ready to go. Another thank you goes to the administrators and teachers who have prepared in a variety of ways for this upcoming school year - everything from attending professional development, to designing new lessons, to decorating their rooms, to even helping with painting! We would not be able to begin school without everyone's hard work during the summer. Finally, I want to thank the great community of Upper Sandusky for all their support, which made all the improvements possible. I encourage everyone to visit a building or attend a sporting, music or other special event and see for yourself. We have a lot to be proud of!
