COBRA COMMUNICATIONS – Craig Schlichting – Superintendent                                                                                             

The progress on the projects for our district continues to move along on the outside and inside of the school building. The projects have been right on schedule and I am looking forward to having it all completed before the school year begins. Our district has excellent facilities and they are in great condition. There is so much to be proud of with the school facilities that we have at Triton Public Schools. When you add the people in our communities to the equation of our school and put the people of our communities in our buildings, I do feel we have the best there is to offer.

There are a number of things going on in our communities this summer, and you don’t have to travel far to enjoy them! The 36th Annual West Concord Survival Days  begins on Thursday night at 7:00, July 22nd with the Guns vs. Hoses Charity Softball Event. The following three days have an awesome variety of events for all ages. The Claremont Hog Fest returns this year with the theme “Return to Greatness” and they are planning some great activities. This festival will kick off on Friday, August 6th at 5:00 pm with a community dinner. This will be followed up with two more days of activities that are sure to offer something of interest for everyone. There is also some great pizza and entertainment on Wednesday nights happening in Berne, each week featuring a different band and you can enjoy the concerts free of charge while sitting in your favorite lawn chair.  You can also find live music at The Annadine in Dodge Center as well as a Bean Bag Tournament later in August put on by the Wrestling Program with the proceeds donated to Suicide Awareness.  I know that I have really enjoyed getting out and about this summer already and talking with people face to face again; it has been refreshing to see people.

Please reach out to me with any questions that you may have regarding our school district. You can email me at or you can call me at 507-418-7530 to reach me at the district office.  I would be happy to set up a time to meet with you or your organization.  I believe that communication is an important aspect of my job responsibility, and I welcome the opportunity to learn from your perspective.  GO COBRAS!
