Good Things Happening

1. Our high school Math League team has 38 participants out of the total 112 in the Three-Rivers Conference. CJ Lee is currently in first place in the individual competition. The top 10 individuals in the league get awards and the first place individual competes at state. The final meet is on February 8th. Other contenders for the top 10 are Matthew Schell in 8th, Madison Church in 9th, Ella Miller in 11th, Crystal Ties in 12th, and Emma Lee in 17th. Good luck in the last competition!  Special thanks to Math Coach Laura Nusbaum for her work and leadership; with our students!  

2,  Congratulations to Carter Jonsgaard with his 100th win in high school wrestling!

3.  Thank you to all of our amazing paraprofessionals.  They support instruction in classrooms, work with individual students and many other tasks that contribute to our educational successes.  They are also amazingly positive, flexible and an essential part of our schools' every day!

4.  Thank you to Britney Sula for organizing after school gym activities for our elementary students.  We know these kids are missing out on winter youth sports such as basektball or wrestling this year.  We need to keep the students in their 'same separate pods' as they are in during the school day.  Britney worked with staff for supervision and it has been a great success.  Students are loving the time to be in the gym and parents are very appreciative too.  

5.  Thank you to Ed Funk who is providing volunteer professional play by play for our livestream varsity basketball games.  His skills greatly liven up the excitement for home viewers!
