Petersburg heads back to school

Petersburg students start a new school year on Monday. Teachers, administrators and other staff spent this past week getting ready. The High School and Middle School have a newly remodeled library, which is now called the “learning commons”. There are new instructors in High School Math and Middle School Language Arts as well as Elementary and Middle School Swimming. There’s also a new program that gives high school students an alternative approach learning. Matt Lichtenstein stopped by the schools this week to speak with some of the new and returning staff.
