Welcome Back for the 2022-2023 School Year!

Welcome back New London-Spicer families and students for the start of the 2022-2023 academic school year.

I want to introduce myself and share a few pieces of information that I hope you will find helpful as you prepare for the upcoming year. My name is Jamie Boelter, and I am honored to be your new Superintendent. My family moved here from New Ulm, MN in 2019 so that I could begin my role as New London-Spicer’s High School principal.  Before becoming an administrator in New Ulm, I served in education as a Language Arts teacher in Austin, MN and Pipestone, MN.

I know New London-Spicer Schools have a long-standing history of strong community involvement and academic success. I am very excited and am looking forward to building on that tradition of excellence with all of our parents/guardians, students, staff, and community members. 

Throughout the summer there has been a lot of planning and preparation in order to get ready for this school year. Our maintenance staff has done an exceptional job of preparing our buildings, so we are able to open our doors to staff and students. Our technology team has been rockstars fixing and replacing broken and outdated classroom equipment, while leading our district’s transition from Microsoft Office to Google Workspace. This transition was necessary to better support our 1:1 devices (Google Chromebooks) and to provide additional and more cost-effective resources and apps.  As a result of this transition, our district's email domain name has changed to @isd345.org. Furthermore, classroom SMARTBoards are being replaced with touch screens as SMARTBoards have become outdated and not cost effective to replace.

I can assure you that our staff is committed to providing high quality academic opportunities and nurturing environments for your students. We welcome our current staff back and look forward to new staff becoming part of the NLS team in August.

It is an honor to serve as your new superintendent. I look forward to many years of working collaboratively with you to ensure a high-quality instructional program, where all students are learning and thriving. You will find several important pieces of information in our academic calendar which will be mailed to every New London-Spicer address, as well as on our Back to School webpage (nls.k12.mn.us/backtoschool). Please take a moment to review these items while you prepare for the first days of school.
