Staff and Students of the Month:

Ryder Henson Mrs. Douglas 5th Grade: His teacher writes” I am very thankful to have Ryder in my class. Ryder is an amazing kiddo. He has a great big heart, he's thoughtful, kind to others and always willing to help me and his classmates. He's honest and does the right thing, even when it's not the popular thing. He's responsible and reliable. And without him, I'm pretty sure the class fish would starve. He maintains his good grades while serving on student council, robotics team and playing outside sports. I can't believe he's only a fifth grader! I am so very proud of this kiddo and feel blessed to have him in my class!” Ryder is an amazing student that has a great support system at home that ensures his success


Kris Wardlaw, 4th and 5th Special Education: Kris has been our campus special education coordinator for several years and is always helping with scheduling and tutoring with students in this setting. Kris is willing to make any plan be successful and has excellent solutions to problems that arise. Kris is a forward thinker and often sees problems before they become situations. For this and mush more, we are grateful he is part of the Intermediate Campus team!


Jenny Caron, 5th Grade Special Education Paraprofessional: Jenny is a new hire this year and has been a huge asset to our special education department. Jenny having a background in teaching was quickly able to step into the role of helping students achieve the best academic understanding possible! Jenny is easy to work with and is a person that has integrity and that you can depend on. We are so thankful to have Jenny in our district and on our team!
