  • KPD who hijacked the student data google drive and added all the SRI scores! What a blessing she continues to be from afar!

  • Diania Mirian who gracefully let us steal her sub for Thursday so Jill Kristek could go home and be a mama to a sick baby.

  • Carolyn and Sara who managed Friday without a Holly due to a sub shortage.


  • Many of you have had to make many accomodations this week due to all the sicknesses we have had. Thank you for helping even when you really didn't want to. We thank you truly.
