Huge Barks and thank you to Sarah Luerson and Alayna Stafford for organizing amazing Teacher Appreciation Week gifts from SGA!


BARK goes to Alexiz Korell. She has made a massive turn around since the 3rd quarter in her demeanor, work ethic, and her focus! She went from having a D last quarter to now holding a high A in my class. She has also taken it upon herself to try and help her fellow classmate Wisdom finish assignments that on his own he was not doing. She has truly become a joy to have in class after having a very rough start to the 2nd semester. She is starting to see value in what she is doing in school and it definitely shows in her work and work ethic in class. Fingers crossed she continues this trend not only through the end of the year but that it carries over to next year as well.


BARKs to the following students for working hard and being persistent:

Blain Anderson

Zane Bessix

Taryn Brandt

Willow Connaster

Alayna Riggins

Kiersten Siegler

Mr. Motily

To all my AP Calculus students for working so hard all year!
