Veterans Day on Monday, November 11, is a time for honoring those who have served our country. Every school in the district has events planned to remember, honor and give thanks to our veterans. My video blog this month is dedicated to our veterans.

We are also including a video that students of Wildcat Media Productions created a couple of years ago with high school social studies/government teacher Carl Pierson. The message is as relevant today as when they produced the video. It’s worth a watch. Hopefully, you can find a way to give thanks to veterans on Monday and may all veterans feel the deep appreciation they deserve.

State of the School District Presentations

At least once every year I go around to the five city councils from the communities that make up ONE10 giving the “State of the District”. Those presentations have begun and, so far, I have presented to the school board, City of Waconia and City of St. Bonifacius. You can watch my school board presentation on the main page of our website at:

We will be sharing the “State of the District” in many different forms in the coming weeks. Look for an article to come out in the Waconia Patriot next week.  

WHS Career Exploration Fair, Nov. 6th

The Career Exploration Fair is an awesome example of how we find ways for students to explore their passions and create their success. Fifty local businesses and organizations came together for an entire morning of talking to students, answer questions and hopefully inspire them to check out some career paths that they found interesting. Every high school student was given the opportunity to walk around and have conversations with business professionals from a wide range of businesses and organizations. What a fantastic WEareONE10 morning!!!  A BIG THANKS goes out to those who came and shared their stories with students and to the event organizers for making this happen.

Have a Fantastic D.E.A.R. Weekend!
WE Are ONE10!!
