Shoutouts & Celebrations

thank you for your outstanding effort, kindness, excellence, and selflessness.

  • Sean Conway: Great Winter Concert!
  • Math & Science Wing Staffers: It's really wonderful how homey the staff bathroom feels in the science/math wing. The abundance of purple tampons really brighten up the room and are super useful if you ever happen to get a nosebleed in the dryness of winter. Also, the staff photo collage is a very nice touch. Nothing says "I love my coworkers" more than having 50+ of them smiling at you while you're on the toilet! Awesome work everyone! Hope everyone has/had a nice break.
  • Jeff Fern, Tracy Klein, & Steph Posta: For their preparation of the "Heat Map" activity was great.
  • Lori Cress, Wendy Hoverson, & Vicki Dresang-Talapa: They helped organize and label the student pictures for the heat map.
  • Chris Deno: Printing, preparing, and sending out testing results to the parents of every 9th, 10th, and 11th-grade student.
  • Jeff Fern, Tracy Klein, & ELA Department: Taking the time to provide every 9th and 10th-grader with their Aspire-Interim results within their ELA class.
  • Tracy Klein, Jeff Fern, Jason Koele, & Steph Posta: Investing a ton of time to develop an intervention plan for students based on the Aspire-Interim and PreACT results. There are many factors to consider and they have done a great job of balancing those factors to move us toward a realistic and appropriate plan.
  • Jen Staidl: Thanks for being a great mentor.
  • Staff: Thanks for a great potluck on Thursday!
  • Seniorita (2 recognitions): for serenading us with "Feliz Navidad". For spreading Christmas cheer throughout the whole today. The students and staff thoroughly enjoyed it!

  • Jordee Reimer, John Tackmann, Garret Wenzel, & Jason Koele: Participated in (and WON) the Chopped competition while making it a fun event for our students to see the staff in a different setting.
  • The Math Department, John Tackmann, Mitch Klimek, Emily Timmers, & Cami Stansbury: Selflessly provided professional development for all of us on how they are implementing SBA&R. Great job!!

You all ROCK!

As We Begin Again...

Remember what Plato said...

The beginning is the most important part of the work.

Transitioning from a long break can be a challenge. Let's focus on the joy of reconnecting with students and colleagues and begin our important work again.
