Approximately 10 new teachers would need to be hired, according to Superintendent John Landgaard, and about 11 more classrooms would be needed. In a district already busting at the seams, this will be no easy task.

WORTHINGTON – Congratulations to Daniel Versluis and his father Scott, this year’s master sleuths. They unraveled the clues to the King Turkey Day medallion hunt before any of the other searchers.
