January is School Board Recognition Month to honor the hours of dedicated service by volunteer board members.
Fourth- and fifth-grade Periwinkle students who are using the new modular classroom facility came to the Board meeting on Monday night to thank the Board for moving them to the space, which, they say, is less crowded, more quiet and has plenty of space to work.
Periwinkle opened the new building a few weeks after the school year started. Growth in the area has resulted in overcrowding. The new modular provides more space.
The District is continuing to grow. Projections show an enrollment increase of about 500 new students in the next five years.
