The fifth annual Back To School BBQ drew 300 people to Neligh-Oakdale on Monday night, giving students early access to their classrooms and teachers.
Hosted by the Neligh-Oakdale Education Foundation, the hotdog and hamburger feed also helped the district meet its school-wide Title requirements. Elementary instructors for Neligh-Oakdale are Tracy Richart and Kelly Ptacek.
New Superintendent Scott Gregory introduced himself to parents and students and said he was excited to continue closing the gap with testing and keep Neligh-Oakdale moving in a positive direction.
Following the introduction, students were shown to their classrooms to put away their supplies.
Neligh-Oakdale Education Foundation board members are Jeff Doerr, Angie Belitz, Rhonda Meyer, Dane Nielsen, Trish Smith and Carrie Pitzer.
