Our new solar panel project started on Monday. Looking forward to saving the district and community a few million dollars over the next 20 years. We were able to secure 0% financing for this project. @SitelogIQ @SmallSchoolDA @nrea1
With school starting in 4 1/2 days our asphalt playgrounds and parking areas are getting resurfaced. Those playgrounds and parking areas look great. #1townschoolcommunity #bwexperience #bwrunners
Another great day of training. All teachers trained in @AeriesSIS, our new student information system. Our K-5 also were trained in our new @StemTaught hands on science program. A little virtual reality is in our students' future. #1townschoolcommunity @smallschoolda
