Superintendent Aaron Rex’s Report
The propane tank has been delivered and we are currently waiting for the electrical hook up. I have contacted Cardinal bus to determine delivery dates for our buses and we will provide training to all bus driving staff once they arrive.
Play clocks are being installed at the football field and will be ready for the last scrimmage of the year. Thank you to Creighton Electric in helping to make this possible for our student athletes.
The office remodel is complete. We are pleased with the results and it will be a positive in terms of safety and work efficiency.
At our first home football game we will be recognizing the 1978 and 2016 State Acme Champions. All players have received invitations and we hope that they will be able to make it. The state champ picture for the hallway will be Aug. 24, and our picture company is providing each player from the 2016 team with a free 8×10 copy of that photo.
