Kudos to Mrs. Castillo, Mrs. Donosso and Mrs. Gamas for stepping up the past couple of weeks and going above and beyond their duties to ensure the front office ran as smooth as possible while we were short staffed. They are the BOMB! and a BIG asset to Hernandez Middle School.

Kudos to Casey Gembecki for using a Concept Mastery Routine with his students. You can see his students' work in the hall outside his door. Thanks for being a risk taker when it comes to trying new things.
