Remembering Mrs. Rogers

There is a garden on the northwest corner of our school that was designed and built in memory of a former teacher. Carole Rogers' classroom is where former student Kaylee Budzien now teaches-irony. The space, flowers and shrubs that are there were dedicated back in 2001. Please enjoy the space and respect it in honor of Mrs. Rogers. She was quite a teacher!

Roller skating like the old days

There was a time when roller skates were clamped on to shoes, then came the skates and shoe all in one, then came roller blades. Here you see pics of the kids skating during phy ed class. Mrs. Monson and Mrs. Sieger rent the skates from a company that brings the skates right to us in the right sizes for the children. Good times and thanks to all of our VOLUNTEERS! for their awesome help.

Corral Celebration

Each time the corral is full of Mustangs earned by our awesome children, we celebrate. This time we enjoyed serving them ice cream sundaes. Our terrific food service offered 2 kinds of chocolate and the old favorite vanilla, with some toppings too. By their faces, we think it was a good time!

Here are the 3 amigos who spooned out the ice cream for the celebration of the full corral. Mrs. Krajewski, Mrs. Hazelwood, Mrs. Spragg, and Mr. Putnam-Efthimio were dazzling in their efforts and their smiles show how much they had fun. Thank you all!
