Compaction
Healthy roots are the foundation for vigorous, lush plant growth.  Roots need a balanced supply of air, water and nutrients to thrive.  Compaction reduces the volume of pore space in the soil, limiting air exchange, water intake and ultimately roots growth.  Its symptoms include weak, slow-growing plants and thin turf stands.  Compaction is more of a problem on heavy clay soils than light sandy soils.

When it comes to education most people think of the students, parents, teachers, buildings, and district administrators as the so called “village” in educating a child. In our district we have some of the best students, parents, and educators that you would find anywhere in the state. What set us apart though are the stake holders that many do not think about until there is a problem. I am referring to the support staff that we are lucky to have in our district and part of our educational team. I would like to publicly thank them for all they do and provide a glimmer of what they do behind the scenes that allows the students in our district to receive the best education possible.
