“I am very excited to continue my career at Ballston Spa in this new role,” indicated Mr. Rasmussen. Further, “I am grateful to the district and community for entrusting me with this responsibility.  I look forward to meeting the middle school students, families and staff. I can't wait to learn about the great work that is underway and maintaining the strong tradition of excellence at Ballston Spa Middle School."
