Planning meetingFINN ROCK: “Our job as a community and as a school is to make sure every student has an opportunity to be the best they can be,” were the words superintendent Jim Thomas used to open a public meeting at the McKenzie Elementary School’s pagoda building last Wednesday night. “We cannot short change them in terms of academics, social skills or the work ethic they need to have to be successful in whatever field they choose to go into,” he added.

During the 2-1/2 hour session parents, teachers and administrators broke up into small groups that worked on topics ranging from expanding vocational training to ways of  improving communications with the community.
