Thank You Sandra Muster
Thank You Sandra Muster!

We would like to acknowledge Sandra Muster for 30 years of continuous service to our School District as a School Board Member!  Board members receive no compensation for what can often be a thankless and difficult job as they listen to the various stakeholders and carefully weigh the consequences of their decisions. In May, Sandra was once again elected by her peers to serve as Board Chairperson, a position that requires many, many additional hours of service.
