On May 12 the middle school celebrated Native American Education Day with a day of great speakers, entertaining dancers, and lots of learning. We thank all the presenters including Supaman and Del Laverdure, who were our keynote speakers. Thanks also to the staff and students who made this happen yet again. And finally, a HUGE thanks to Mrs. Roberts, who has organized this event for several years and who makes it looks effortless when we know it is anything but that. We'll miss her leadership and enthusiasm next year but wish her all the best in her retirement. She has earned it.
Our 8th graders enjoyed their trip to Washington D.C. and New York City. They got to see many of the sights in DC and got to choose between a baseball game and a Broadway musical in NYC. They behaved well and made us proud. Our thanks to Mr. and Mrs. Swanke and Mrs. Dawson for taking them on this amazing road trip! It wouldn't happen without them. If your upcoming 8th grader would like to go on next year's trip, have them contact Mrs. Dawson in the middle school. Planning has already started, but it's not too late to sign up!
