Bluejay Breakfast … Please Join Us!

Mark your calendars now for our May “Bluejay Breakfast” to be held Wednesday, May 10th, at 7:20 a.m. in the Ashland-Greenwood Middle School/High School cafeteria.  As a reminder, a free breakfast will be served at 7:20 a.m.  Following breakfast, an informative program will begin promptly at 7:30 a.m.   EVERYONE is welcome to attend this event, and we are hoping for a large turnout of parents, grandparents, patrons, and members of our local businesses.  In addition, this will be our last Bluejay Breakfast this school year.  Take advantage of this opportunity!  

Once again, a tremendous educational presentation will be provided at the May 10th, “Bluejay Breakfast.”  Ashland-Greenwood Elementary teachers Patrick Mencke and Brandon Nygren will provide information related to blended learning opportunities occurring within their classrooms.  By combining classroom instruction with on-line support, the learning can become much more personalized for students.  Through blended learning, students can, in part, control the time, pace, and place of their own learning experiences.  The program will conclude at approximately 8:00 a.m.  

I am confident that attendees will find the presentation to be engaging, informative, and educational.  This is our opportunity to build strong lines of communication with our constituents and to promote the incredible things happening within our district.  And as a reminder, it includes a FREE BREAKFAST!

Please email me at if you plan to attend.

We hope to see you at the Middle School/High School cafeteria on Wednesday, May 10th at 7:20 a.m.

 Professionally Yours,

Jason Libal – Superintendent
