- Tovah Carson: Posted positive comments about our school district and students!
... So thankful that the district I work at promotes a more proactive approach with our students, even if it's a difficult high school kid! More schools need to do this, Adults expect others not to judge them on their past behaviors, why are kids allowed to be judged this way? EVERY child deserves a new start, a new beginning EVERY day, some may even need it every hour, doesn't matter who they are or where they came from.
- Zach Turpin: Coach Turpin is on the cutting edge of fashion! He selected a spectacular polo design for the basketball coaches. Well-done!
- High School Staff: Completing the "Adult Culture" survey. Your insights and opinions matter.
- Teachers and Specialists: Working hard to complete their EE requirements.
- Heather Jourdeans: She cheers her colleagues on and never fails to make us laugh.
- Jordee Reimer: He did NOT run me over with his car in the parking lot! YAY!
- Gretchen Rozeboom and Bill Emery: A football season full of great concessions!
- BLT Members: Running informative and effective PLC time.
You all ROCK!
