Wrapping up the Teacher & Staff Appreciation Week on Day #5 we recognized this group of professionals who do everything from mending students if they trip over a wire to making sure communication wires don’t get crossed & they all stay connected. From our nurse & psych examiner to our technology department, the vital roles each of these individuals play in the district are crucial in allowing students to function on a daily basis. Without any one of them, the learning environment becomes difficult for students to be successful in. They all make sure students are their number one priority to progress forward educationally. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO, YOU ARE APPRECIATED!
