Pep Rally Held to Welcome Back District #7 Staff

District #7 teachers and staff kicked off the start of the new school year by holding a virtual pep rally yesterday on their first day back!  Each building was encouraged to wear spirit wear and when the roll call occurred, each school cheered and showed their school spirit!

Speakers included District #7 Superintendent, Dr. Patrick Shelton, Board of Education President, John McDole, and Director of Curriculum, Tara Fox.

Although we would have loved to have everyone together to kick off the school year, it was still a refreshing way to bring all the staff back to the buildings and create a positive atmosphere across the district!

District #7 is ready to welcome back on our students on Wednesday, August 11th for the first (half day) of school!
