Please join us in officially welcoming Mr. Jackson, Mrs. Burkink, Ms. Mullen, Miss Zach, Miss Nichols, and Mr. Bartels to our District!
A huge thank you to ALL the staff and stakeholders who show up big-time this time of year to give a warm welcome (and even some Gothenburg Swag... thanks, Gothenburg Chamber of Commerce!) to these new teachers! #GoSwedes
