Passing of the Rocks
Joy Wright is passing the Staff Wellness Rock on to Mike Rollins. I am constantly inspired by Mike's focus on the overall well being of the staff and students. His commitment to creating opportunities for his department and the staff at KP to be aware of the best practices in this area along with current readings makes all of us want to be better at what we do and who we are as people.
Branden Steben is passing the Student Success Rock to Brandon Steben is passing the Student Success Rock to Marilyn Clarke. Throughout the day, Marilyn can be found in multiple places throughout the building providing support to students and staff. From preparing materials for lessons, to covering classes, to supporting our students after school, she is an integral part of the KP community. Recently, Marilyn offered a sense of comfort and allowed students to feel at ease as they processed difficult news and awaited counseling support. Within all of her roles, whether direct or indirect, Marilyn is a key contributor to helping our students succeed here at King Philip. Marilyn, you rock!
