Special Shout Outs!

I wanted to give a few shout outs this week!


  • Thanks goes out to Sean, Coleen, and Brenda, along with various students that worked at cleaning up the front of the school and making it safe from the ice. Still keep it slow each morning as we deal with freeze, melt, and refreeze.

  • Thanks for everyone for your participation, preparation, for our data meetings. It was great to see how many of our students have grown so much! I love how when we pull together to problem solve so many great things come out of it in the end as we continue to take kids from where they are and get them where we want them to be!
