Deslynn shared the following message about Bev: "I want to give a shout out to Bev. She has had some big shoes to fill. Being in the Accountability Hearings with her I appreciate her experience as an FSL. She brings a new view to attendance as the FCL. It’s been great to hear her speak with families. Her background in the FAST program adds a layer of information and understanding that helps me as a liaison when working with students. Thanks, Bev!!"


Wonderful, Bev!

A poem written by Pam

"I wrote this poem in my early 20's. This Poem is the only published one I have written. Please enjoy my vision of Autumn which is my favorite time of year...."


Autumn's Calling

The sound of the wind...
Whispering through the trees
Sweetened by the smell of wildflowers
from a summer soon forgotten

Autumn's Calling



The sound of the wind

Whispering through the trees

Sweetened by the smell of wildflowers

from a summer soon forgotten



The suns rays slant down

Down through lodgepole pines

Trying once more to warm the day

Only to give in to the night

Sooner than the day before



The leaves are taking on hues

Of Gold, Auburn, and Rust

Bright against the backdrop of the forest

Like brushstrokes from some invisible painter



And once again the wind,

Singing its melody of seasonal change,


Autumn's Calling... ~PJM
