Staff Shout Outs

Mrs. James and Mrs. Korabek's class rocked the socks off our visitors from St. Anthony. They were amazed at the level of readers we have and also the knowledge and expertise of our teachers!!! Thank you for sharing!!!

Wow!!! Mr. Guerra really made it difference last night with his parent meeting. He is all about educating his parents to have the tools to support their students!!! Thanks to Mr. Beck for providing childcare!!!

The Rice Way Team met with RRG Consulting to continue to develop social/emotional curriculum for our campus next year. A few teachers will pilot the lessons and make some tweaks. The Rice Way Team will talk more about this during Racoon TRACKS on March 27th. This team is doing amazing things for our campus!!!
