Thank You, Mr. Hoover, and the RHS Band Demonstration!

Teacher Spotlight: Welcome, Mrs. Constine!

My name is Michelle Constine, and I am originally from Marinette, Wisconsin. I wanted to be an art teacher since I met my first art teacher in Kindergarten. I could not believe such an exciting job really existed. I have been married to my husband Neil for 23 years. He is a Marine and so we have traveled and lived all over the world. One of our favorite places was Iwakuni, Japan. We have three children: Madelyn, Owen, and Quintin. I love making art in my free time. Ceramics and painting large murals is my favorite thing to do. I also enjoy any activity outside. My family and I enjoy camping, boating, kayaking, snow shoeing, ice skating and down hill skiing. Minnesota is such a beautiful place to be and I am so excited to teach art at Shannon Park! Looking forward to meeting you all!

Would You Like to Honor a Veteran?

Students are invited to ask parents/guardians if there are family members that have served in any branch of the U.S. military. This can include grandparents, parents, siblings, cousins, aunts, or uncles. With the help of parents/guardians, students can complete information on the following document to be used in a Shannon Park hallway display. A copy of this document will also be coming home in Friday Folders. Feel free to provide a copy of the family member's photo (non-returnable) if you would like to have it displayed with the document. Please bring document and/or photo to school office by Wednesday, October 20.
