Superintendent Austin said they believe the new heat and air units in the classrooms, new insulation and lighting, and the new roof will reduce the district’s utility bills at the high school by up to 70%.

Town Talk II

Been a slow news week. Not a lot of news in this issue of the Star. It is mid-summer and sometimes news is slow. People go on vacation, visit out-of-town, or stay inside and stay cool. We have published lists and schedules this week. School supply lists, football and volleyball schedules, and a Maize Days schedule are included. Might clip them out and save.
