GILFORD — School District Superintendent's Kirk Beitler's first few days have been filled with meeting district staff, visiting the three buildings on the campus, and settling in to his new position.
Beitler, the former assistant superintendent in the Laconia School District, said he is anticipating a busy summer as he familiarizes himself with his district and oversees the mechanical renovation project at the Elementary School.
"Today I met with some elementary students who are at 'camp' at the high school," he said, noting that because of the elementary school construction, the annual school-sponsored summer camp is centered at the high school this year.
Beitler said he has spent his first three days most scheduling meetings with building principals and staff. He also gave a reading at the Historical Society's recent Fourth of July program where there was a performance of the Gilford Community Band.
He said next on his list is setting appointments with the town of Gilford department heads, which he hopes to do next week. He said he plans on attending an upcoming meeting of the Board of Selectman which he will schedule with the town administrator.
"There are great schools here and I am really excited," Beitler said Thursday.
