A Shirley, a rising senior, is our first Student of the Week for the 2018-19 school year. He has done so much during the past month to help our school be ready to open the first day. Aaron is among a group of dedicated members of the Class of 2019 who created the incredibly artful drawings on the glass walls of the senior dining room. Additionally, he helped Mrs. Khoshaba and Mr. Welty in sweltering conditions to get rid of the thickets of weeds by our main entrance and to put down new plants and mulch. Congrats!
Congratulations to our August Teacher and Staff of the Month, Mrs. Khoshaba and Mrs. Brinkley. Mrs. Khoshaba worked hard to bring the main entrance back to and beyond its former glory; snakes could barely slow her down! Mrs. Brinkley has worked tirelessly with a variety of contractors this summer to make sure we were ready to go on day one. An impressive Summer effort by all!!
