One thought on “School Board meeting

  1. My concern : it’s a hard job teachers have, especially ELSE teachers such as Kim Hartzog. Receiving an award this week should not only receive JUST a certificate , but also be recognized by a luncheon or other . The school is very lucky to have her along with others who put their all into teaching. Please consider this request for Kim and the two others. Recognize what you have. Thanks
