In honor of School Board Recognition Month, Superintendent Deb Clemens gave the Board members a token of gratitude from the district for their hard work.

Pleasant Glade Elementary School Principal Jessica Flanick and Leadership Club Facilitator Nicki Goodwin shared how their 4th and 5th grade students participating in Leadership Club serve the school community. Leadership students read with younger students, assist with kindergarten classrooms, lead campus clean-up efforts, and more!
