Veterans Day Program 2014

Community invited to provide feedback for Superintendent search
After a very successful career, Superintendent Patty Phillips will be retiring from School District 622 at the end of June. In preparation for her departure, the School Board is beginning the search for her replacement and is working with School Exec Connect, a superintendent search firm. 
To begin the process, School Exec Connect will be meeting with staff, parents, students and community members during the next couple of weeks to determine strengths, challenges and district goals, as well as characteristics and skills the community would like to see in a superintendent. 
To help provide that feedback, residents of the North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District are invited to attend one of the open meetings being held at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 18. The open meetings will be held at both North High School (2416 East 11th Avenue, North St. Paul) and Tartan High School (828 Greenway Avenue North, Oakdale). 
Residents may also provide feedback by completing a Survey Monkey form. All responses are confidential and the link to the survey is located at Feedback should be submitted by Nov. 19
 The Power of Positive Connections
For the past couple of years, Business Professionals of America students from North High School have been spending time once a week volunteering in Richardson Elementary School classrooms. The high school students have served as positive role models and mentors for Richardson kids.
