First and foremost, we want to keep Mrs. Sass Balzer in our prayers as she undergoes therapy.  There are a variety of fundraisers taking place to help her.  I encourage everyone to give as they can.  She is certainly missed by us all.

 

Summer saw a great many projects completed at our school.  The hallways at the elementary and the high school were painted as well as the elementary gym and high school cafeteria.  The elementary asphalt playground also received a new top coat and all cracks were patched.

 

Restrooms at both sites were also painted.  The high school boys’ restrooms received new stalls while the elementary boys’ had new flooring installed.

 

The elementary cafeteria tables were replaced by the high school folding tables.  The high school cafeteria, meanwhile, has new 60” round tables.  This has created a much more welcoming atmosphere for our students.

 

For the first time in several years, our school was able to purchase new textbooks.  The state math curriculum has been changed and it is imperative that we stay up to date.  We are thankful that the state legislature has decided to once again provide some funding for textbooks.  However, the state funding ($28,895) we receive will only pay for about sixty percent of the math texts ($46,000) for our district. 

 

Obviously, the state funding does not include any aid for software programs that are critical for student preparation and remediation such as Accelerated Reader, Star Reading, Study Island, Reading Eggs and Edgenuity which total about $16,000.  We are hopeful that in the next session our legislators will find a way to fund all such essential study materials.

 

Staff morale has never been higher as our school year starts.  I’m sure that has a lot to do with the new pay scale.  As always, we will continue to provide the best education possible for your children.  If we can be of any service, please don’t hesitate to ask.

 

Respectfully,

 

 

 

Larry R. Johnson, Superintendent

Burns Flat-Dill City Public Schools
