Back to School 2015-16

Sturgeon R-V Back to School 2015-16

Greetings from Sturgeon R-V.  It’s already that time of year when young voices will once again fill our classrooms and hallways.  Students, Parents, and Staff will be coming in to updated restroom and locker room facilities in the K-8 building and new classrooms and canopy construction at the H.S.  This is an effort to continue to improve the quality and quantity of our districts facilities.  These improvements are possible due to the successful passing of a no tax increase bond issue proposal in November 2014.
                Several new personnel will be serving in our district this coming year in multiple positions including: 6-12 Agriculture, H.S. Business, H.S. Counselor, 6-12 Band, M.S. Math, M.S. Science, Third Grade, Special Education director, and Elementary Secretary.  I am excited to welcome our new personnel and the expertise they bring to our district.
                The 2014-15 school year was the first year that our 3-8 grade students took their state assessments on computers.  Our H.S. students have been assessed in this manner now for several years.  We are eager to receive the results of our students’ assessments.  We should officially hear in September or October how our students performed district-wide.
                Lastly, I would like to welcome Mrs. Penny Fadler to the administrative team.  Mrs. Fadler comes to us from the Hallsville School district where she served as a special education process coordinator.  Mrs. Fadler will be serving as our new special education director and I am confident her experience and expertise will serve our special needs students well. 
                As always, I want to say thank you to our districts’ patrons for their unending support of the school district in every way.
