Dear students and families,
Welcome back! I hope everyone had an enjoyable summer. It’s hard to believe it is over already. But we are excited about what this new school year will bring.
The faculty and staff here are ready to get back to work and give our best in educating your children. We are working on some new initiatives to address some of our needs in the building. Everyone is excited about our new technology—junior high students all have iPads and the high schoolers have been assigned new iMac Air laptops. Additionally, the junior high students will all share the same core teachers, creating a team approach to help create stronger relationships with students and better identify and address individual student needs.
A yearlong focus throughout the building will be the foundation of the New Tech philosophy: Trust, Respect, and Responsibility. As a staff, we are looking to identify and celebrate students who exhibit these traits on a monthly basis. We wish to celebrate our successes on a more consistent basis. Keep an eye on the web site for further details.
We are excited to have several new members on our staff. They are eager to become part of the Bobcat family. Be sure to check out their biographies. Our new members this year are:
Bianca Ash—Special Education
Eric Baierl—Special Education
Amy Budka—Language Arts
Scot Hollenbaugh—Project Lead the Way/Industrial Technology
Joel Johnston—Physical Education
Ryan Julian—Social Studies
Angela Radtke—Language Arts
In closing, we are here to provide the children of our community the best education we can. We realize that parental support is vital to the success of educating children. As such, we welcome your support in this endeavor. And again, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get a hold of the school and/or your students’ teachers. We look forward to a rewarding and successful school year! GO BOBCATS!
"Through Trust, Respect, & Responsibility the staff, students, and parents will work cooperatively to create a learning environment for the success of all students."
Mr. Tim Pletcher
