April 10-15, 2023 Marysville Jr/Sr High School
Sometimes a story resonates with you. I had one resonate while watching the Masters, the first golf major of the year, this weekend. Sam Bennett, an amateur and senior from Texas A&M, played so well the first two days that he found himself in the final group for round three. I so wanted him to win and, although he played well, he did end up falling down the leaderboard. It was the story of his dad that had me cheering for this young man. He lost his father to early onset Alheimer's back in 2021 and had a hard time dealing with the loss, but it was the last words his dad ever said that I took to heart: "Don't wait to do something." He actually had this tattooed on his forearm and looks down before every shot to remind himself of this advice. I just loved this and wanted to share this story and advice with you all as we continue on this busy spring. Keep chasing those goals and dreams and "Don't wait to do something."

Biology Club Visits Omaha Zoo
Students in Biology Club went to the Omaha Zoo with Mrs. Holle on April 5th. While there, they learned about the barn owl ambassador animal husbandry and career exploration. They then had a background tour of the zoo's aquarium where they saw the coral restoration program, feeding bays, dietary needs, extensive lighting and filtering requirements, the importance of the ozone, and some of the zoo's up and coming exciting announcements (that cannot be posted.) They enjoyed the rest of the day tourning animal exhibits, rehab centers and nursery areas.

Bulldogs of the Week in High School: Isaac Hight & McKenzie Holle
As I was walking in the building with my arms full, Isaac helped me get the door open so I wouldn't drop anything. I assumed he was following behind me to enter school. He said that he was not but was headed to the Ag building. Much appreciated, Isaac!
McKenzie took time off Monday night to come with her teacher to talk about our forensics team and their trip to nationals. Nice job and congrats, McKenzie!
