New Facebook sites by school area have been established.

Each site will attempt to be a gathering place to celebrate and inform this region about our new school communities. We hope that these sites will assist in making a connection between the school district and the region community by providing another means of gathering feedback and input from individuals within our 2142 school district and increasingly busy society.

This is still somewhat of a work in progress with sites newly adding membership.If you are interested in being a member of your local school site, please visit your relevant site in the list below. On each page to the right of the page name is a spot where you can like your school page and receive automatic updates when something new to the page is added. If you are interested in becoming more involved (as an administrator), contact the local school page by posting your interest on that page. You should be somewhat active at your area school or just willing to help improve it. We can use the help! Online comments on these sites are always welcome for helping to improve our schools!

Here is the listing of the sites:

Northeast Range Nighthawks:

Northwoods Grizzlies:
