Council created a fund which accommodates the one-time payment of $350 grant money given to the school by the state for a first-year teacher. The resident educator program is a transformative journey where in the teacher’s first year, they are introduced to the life of teaching and are provided instructional one-to-one mentoring, as well as the emotional support needed to accelerate the professional growth. Principal Nicholas Langhals spoke on the grant.
“The award is given one time each year for one teacher,” Langhals explained. “It helps pay their wages.”
Faculty and staff congratulated the high school students who excelled at the regional Science Fair on March 2, which included students receiving Superior ratings; Kyle Maag in Energy, Griffin Morman in Plants, Erin Eickholt in Environmental Science, Troy Ricker in Animal Science and a first-place special award from the Navy and Marines; and Ryan Hoersten in Chemistry and chosen as one of the top four projects qualifying him for an opportunity to attend the National Science Fair. In addition, Marissa Krietemeyer received an Excellent rating for her project.
Three high school students submitted their works of art and placed in the Kewpee Art Show held at Art/Space Lima in early March. Tyler Blankemeyer placed 1st in Sculpture, Kaylynn Noriega placed 2nd in Sculpture and Reanne Higginbotham placed 2nd in Mixed Media.
