SUPERINTENDENT REPORT

There is still a lot to work on, refining and defining the plans.  Michael continues to work closely with Doug Nichols to keep the project on-track and focused.  The Board discussed the floor plans.  Tina Cayton heard rumors about businesses being asked to make donations for a turf football field.
