Bearcat Brief

October 20, 2017

Notes from Niki

It has been a great week. It started off with a $1000 donation to the MakerSpace from Moore Gear in recognition of their 30th anniversary. The girls have played great basketball this week. The lunch for boss's day was fantastic- thank you again for the gifts and lunch. Getting the confirmation that Michael Bornstein is able to be here was certainly a highlight, but that has been accompanied by tremendous community support. We have financial commitments from The Hermann Arts Council and Scenic Regional Library, lodging from the Stone Giraffe, advertising and a feature article from the Advertiser-Courier and an anonymous $1000 donation. It takes time to process things through groups, but we also have likely support from the Community Foundation of the Hermann Area, the German American Club, and the Chamber of Commerce. The whole experience has just affirmed that this is a great place to live and work. Thanks for your continued hard work and your contributions to the Middle School community.
