To Mr. C, thank you for helping out in my 7th Grade Math classroom for the Wednesday and Thursday block days this week. I'm not sure how I would have been able to keep 4 different stations going plus your "Creation Station" without you being there. You provided some valuable insight with my students on technology that they now appreciate the lessons that I put together for them. If you read this, stop by my room for your gift! :)

P.S. - I don't think I have sent out a Kudos ever....

- Jennifer Gregorcyk


I have to say kudos to Cherri Urban and Wendy Tucker for maintaining so many of our Hernandez Middle School Traditions. Thank you!

- Desiree Le


Kudos to Amanda West for being such a fantastic new partner in the fine arts/band department. She has already helped so much organizationally within our program and the students love her class. Mandy is an awesome fine arts team member. Thanks!
