FROM OUR SUPERINTENDENT
It's a new school year, and with it many exciting changes in the district, including a new face at the 
Central Office. One thing that hasn't changed is that we seek to make this website the go-to place to get news and information. You may want to print out the 2017-2018 academic calendar (students' first day is August 23rd) and your kids will want you to bookmark the lunch calendar to know what good things the kitchen staff is serving. Here is the calendar of upcoming events. At the JH/HS building, Coach Anliker has this year's schedule updated on the MNW football pageFind this year's secondary band performance calendar on page 3 of the MNW Band Handbook to print out, and check out a list of Mr. Olson's favorite authors on his pageWe haven't forgotten the elementary: Mr. Anderson has uploaded photos of some elementary students' art projects. Learn about 1,000 Books Before Kindergarten on the preschool page, and watch a promotional video starring a fifth grader. This is going to be a great school year!
