Graduation for the Class of 2017 was a great experience for all! I’m thankful for a great team of educators to make such a substantial event happen. The student graduation committee also deserves a great deal of credit for all of their hard work. Senior Parents stayed up all night with me as we celebrated the Class of 2017 at the Graduation Lock In party. The parents added laser tag this year which was a big hit and handed out thousands and thousands of dollars of cash and prizes donated by community partners. We qualified 2 to the state tennis meet and 3 individual event participants and one running team to the state track meet. The baseball team upset Hudson in the WIAA playoffs before losing in the Regional Final on Thursday evening. Project Search at the Walmart Distribution Center graduated several students one from Menomonie High School which is always a great experience. Project Search is a special education outreach transition program where students intern for a year learning job skills before moving into the workforce.
Final Thoughts and one post from George Couros – Mr. Couros visited us earlier in the year and I thought this post was relevant especially considering the 1:1 environment we’re headed into …..
Thank you for being a great staff committed to students above all else. I appreciate every single one of you and look forward to the 17/18 school year….AFTER a nice long and restful summer.
