Lindbergh Schools Board of Education members and administrators recently met with representatives from local churches to provide an update on district programs and discuss how both institutions can work together to meet the needs of students.
In particular, administrators and clergy discussed the growing number of young families who are moving to the area and how best to serve them.
“Churches and schools have a common goal, and that is to provide positive support for families, safe places for them to gather and a solid foundation for the future,” Superintendent Jim Simpson stated in a district news release. “Both institutions play vital roles in our community and regular communication helps us all stay strong.”
