Thank Yous

There are many people who are part of our schools that deserve thank yous.  Many go unnoticed.  I would like to say thanks to a few people who touched my family at Central Elementary this week.

Jake is the night custodian.  Every time I see him he offers cheerful conversation.  We like to talk about KU basketball (and football this year) and Notre Dame football (not so much this year).  I look forward to evening meetings at the school in hopes of running into Jake.

Jim Hecocks is the principal.  He’s brought a professional energy to the school.  He spent much of his time this Saturday checking on 5th grade students around town who were fund raising.

Donna Salemink is a teacher and Central parent who is giving extra time to coach Odyssey of the Mind.  I’m thrilled that she will be my daughter’s coach.

Veronica Sommers is another parent who gives much to the school.  She brings us the geography bee and many other enrichment programs.

The parents, teachers and staff who are part of the school improvement task force.  I’m excited about the future possibilities for the school.

The 5th Grade teachers who organized an amazing authors day at the school on Friday.

Mrs. Morgan, my sons teacher, who has had to deal with death in her family but still musters the energy to have kids excited about learning.

There are many others at Central who are an important part of our life.  Thanks everyone.
