Rhinelander Schools welcome new staff
On Thursday, Aug. 23, the School District of Rhinelander, Rhinelander Partners in Education, and the Rhinelander Area Chamber of Commerce worked together to host an orientation day for new school professional staff.
The new staff spent the morning learning about School District procedures and information. The day consisted of a “Welcome to Rhinelander Tour” led by representatives from the District and Rhinelander PIE.
Traveling on a bus, the group visited school buildings and other important areas in the community. During lunch at CAVOC, they were addressed by a variety of community leaders who provided information while welcoming them to the community.
