Email News Alerts

The month of May is a time of transition, as spring gives way to summer, and high school seniors graduate, moving from childhood to adulthood.


It is also a time when retiring teachers begin a new chapter in their lives — and this year, four of our area school districts said goodbye to a wealth of educational experience.

Lake Park-Audubon Elementary School, in particular, saw four of its most experienced educators teach their last day of classes this week.
