The Royall School District’s annual meeting will be at 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 23. If you were not able to make it and have any questions, feel free to give me a call or an email. We have made tremendous gains in the district financially, physically, and academically. In the past six years, we have invested over $8 million into our academics and our facilities without going to referendum and while maintaining a relatively stable mill rate. As I have said in the past, thank you all for trusting us with your most prized possession — your children and our students — and for trusting us with your money!

I have reserved Tuesday, Sept. 17, from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. for my next lunch with the superintendent. It is very simple: Join me for lunch to discuss whichever topic you choose, such as budgeting, scheduling, staffing, or even politics. I would appreciate it if you called to let me know you were coming so we could plan for the appropriate space. I am also willing to come to you with information. Please give me a call and let me know where you would like to meet, when you would like me to attend, and what to prepare for and I will be there.

See you at school.
