Dear Staff, Students, and the Community,

I would like to take this opportunity to share a few thoughts with you as we move forward through this challenging time.  Over the past three decades, I have developed a profound respect and admiration for the staff and students in our school community.  There is something special about being a Baler; a sense of pride, tradition, and a familial spirit that makes us who we are.  We have an excellent staff and student body that exudes Baler Pride each and every day.  This is something I feel passionate about as we continue to work together to ensure our students are provided the best educational opportunities possible.

The entire administrative team is committed to providing stability, consistency, and leadership now and in the future.  Please know that our goal is to continue our efforts of working collaboratively in the best interests of our staff and students.  We will continue to provide clear, honest, and transparent information today and in the days to come.  Collaborative conversations will continue with both bargaining units as we move into negotiations and begin to plan for next year.

As the holidays and new year are upon us, I hope all of you enjoy time to rest, relax, and spend time with your families and friends.  Please know that my door is always open and I wish you a wonderful holiday.

My Best, 

Shawn Tennenbaum, Interim Superintendent
