Thanks to Morgan for my awesome new book! Pictures coming soon!

I would like to thank all of the teachers that have already nominated their 10 students for the Larger Learner Profile Award Ceremony! If you have not nominated please let me know! I would also like to thank all that are involved in making Culture Day a success from running a station, planning to covering a group I appreciate y'all!

Kudos to Katelyn Barnhart for making it into IBEN to become an IB workshop leader this summer please congratulate her when you see her!

- Desiree Le

I would like to thank Matt Wilson for being such a team player! He has covered a couple of ARD meetings when he wasn't the original teacher invited. Thanks Matt for helping us out!

- Kelli Hutka

Kudos to Mrs. Dougherty, E.L.A.R. Instructional Coach from S.P.H.S., who is devoting a large portion of her schedule to S.S.I. with our eighth graders!

Kudos to the eighth grade Science and U.S. History teachers, who are being very generous with allowing pullouts from their classes for E.L.A.R. S.S.I.​

- Casey Gembicki

THANK YOU SO MUCH, Elaine Fowler and Kathy Green for all of your hard work on our behalf! I really appreciate you helping busy teachers(me included) get their RRISE money!
