    Welcome to this week’s edition of the District 50 Insider.

    It was a busy, fun weekend in the community and the Insider has it covered.

    Students from Hodgkins Elementary were the lucky participants in this year’s “Putts for a Purpose” event at Adventure Golf. It’s the subject of our Insider video.

    Metz Elementary hosted its second annual Hot Rod Car show on Saturday, while the Irving Street Library kicked off its new Sunday hours with a community celebration.

    We have some leadership changes to tell you about. The Insider will introduce you to the District’s newest Principals and Assistant Principal’s as well as the Executive Director of the District 50 Education Foundation. We have a link to their new newsletter as well.
