When guests are in our building they notice!

I received this email from a guest that was in our school recently.

Dear Mr. Dahline and Mr. Schroeder,

I had the distinct privilege of being invited to your school as a guest speaker on Wednesday, April 6th in Ms. Felty's child development class. I had the time of my life in those few short hours in your school. I found your students to be attentive and very receptive. Together we explored the reading behaviors of toddlers and preschoolers, how to choose a book appropriate for toddlers/preschoolers and how to read to toddlers/preschoolers. I have attached a few photos from the work your students' took up. As you can see they were extremely engaged as they worked to prepare for their upcoming "Play School" event.

I just wanted to take a few minutes to thank you for the opportunity to work with these amazing students and to share with you how much I appreciated being apart of your learning community, if only for one day. It is exciting to see the great teaching and learning that is happening in your High School.
