Box 49 Park River, ND 58270 Dn irTf'In A Ir p n A ll,i, Irl I #' P / UJL. l. curriculum director, Shramm has also taken on the role of athletic di- rector. Schramm earned his teaching degree from tile University of North Dakota and spent 11 years in the classroom as a math teacher in both Williston and Grand Forks schools before deciding to take on the challenges of administration. He pursued his master's and in 2008. he took on his firsl principal position at Northern Cass. He said that Northern Cass was a very good school where he had a very positive experience, but he found himself wanting more of a sense of community. Northern Cass, which is near Fargo, serves Argusville. Arthur. Erie. Gardner. Grandm. Hunter. and surrounding areas. He saw the opportunity in Park River as a chance to be in a single community school where people work. live. and attend school func- tions m the community. Scramm, his wife and their three children in second grade, kindergarten, and preschool made the move to Park River. It has been a big change lbr both Schramln and tile students, but he is planning on easing into the future of PRt-IS, starting by learning names and faces of the people who make up the school district and building relationships. "That's a big part of it," he said explaining that it takes two to three years to get to know people and establish a common language. He also is workin, g oil finding balance between his two roles with academics and athletics. In his first Aggie News newslet- ter he said, "On the first day it school, I shared with tile student body that change is inevitable it is just a part of life. As we progress through this school year and the years to come, there will be changes that take place. Some of these changes will be very sub- tle and others may be bold, but any changes that take place are in an effort to make things better tbr our students and their education. The one thing that will not change is the expectation for high academ- ic achievement that Park River Schools I!avc become known tbr."
