I am truly greatful for all you have done for me. And the second picture is my favorite cause I made you laugh. I’m really glad I didn’t end up crying I almost did but I held it together!

Don't know about you but I am looking forward to a relaxing SUNNY day!! 😉
& apparently so is Mr Corey Golla our NEW Superintendent, who we happen to have the privilege of having as our guest speaker this Wed, to speak to us on his new position and what is in store for our wonderful school district, students and families this year!!
I have said it many, many, many times (I know - you probably are sick of me saying it but...) we are so blessed and fortunate to be in a community where so many Village entities are connected and work together to support each other and the community, especially in the best interest of our youth. There is a reason we have such a great school district, develop such awesome students and future leaders and are known (even at other schools in the area) to have such contagious school spirit!! a "spirit" that overflows into the community!!! And it all starts with our administrators & teachers in our school district!!
This is your opportunity to see first hand why & how we are, in my humble opinion, the best community to live in and raise a family!! Be prepared with some questions for Mr Golla about the coming year!
If you have any new neighbors or know new families to Menomonee Falls, please invite them to get an inside peek to our School District!
