Teacher of the Year

The teacher of the year banquet was on Thursday, November 9 at the Imperial Room. It was an honor to recognize Stephanie Razska-Arsenault as our teacher of the year. As Nelson Mandela once wrote, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." We thank you and congratulate you for being an outstanding educator!

School Tiles

The school tiles are now on display in the cafeteria. Mr. Schaefer placed the 130 tiles on the cafeteria wall on November 12. If you haven’t decorated a tile yet, there is still time to purchase one. There are so many great designs, Biblical phrases, and decorations that look fantastic. The tiles will certainly be a topic for conversation.
