Thank You Coaches
I want to give a shout out to James Scherping at GRHS. We were struggling to find a coach for the Junior High Girls Basketball team. And it came down to the wire. Without James stepping up to coach our girls, we wouldn’t have had a team this year.
All of our coaches give so much of their extra time to make sure our students succeed. Thank you!
"Working" on the Weekends
We want to give a shout out to Jessica Taylor in Bigfork! Last month, she took her daughter and a few of our Bigfork students up the North Shore because she knew they had never made the trip and thought it was too good not to see in a person’s lifetime. “Giving up” her precious weekend to spend time with kids she spends all week with certainly demonstrates her care and concern for the families in Bigfork!
Supporting Us After School
Randy Longmore, our GRHS technician, was a huge support for the second annual GRHS Gaming Night, put on by the HOPE Club. Randy brought in TV's, computers, met with our planning group multiple times, and even temporarily set up Minecraft for high school students to enjoy one of their favorite games. He is such a positive and helpful person. The event could not have happened without him.
Nurse Traci is an amazing asset to Southwest Elementary. She cares for all students and is dependable when it comes to the care of our students. She also has a very busy year with many high level nursing responsibilities that go above and beyond the daily issues.
Renee Johnson is a Special Education Teacher at RJEMS. Ms. Johnson is always striving to help students and other staff succeed. She routinely helps other special education teachers and is a huge support to them. She is always problem solving and approaches every issue with a TEAM mindset. District #318 is proud of Renee Johnson and her dedication to our students!
Amazing and Helpful
I want to thank the custodial staff at RJEMS for the amazing job they did over the summer and continue to do every day to have the building clean and ready for students and staff. They are so kind and helpful; they deserve our thanks everyday!
Thinking of Others
Manny Jasso our cook here at Forest Lake is so kind! Whether it's bringing in donuts for the staff in the morning or getting something for a student in need, he is always thinking of others.
Mr. Simula is an awesome teacher. Every year, at RJEMS, he provides students with a fun swing dance unit in his PE classes. Students actually enjoy this unit a ton, learning about the fun to be had on the dance floor. Check out this great unit!
Since joining the ISD 318 staff in 2014, I have worked beside an individual that truly displays ISD 318 Pride. He takes the time to talk to the kids as we go from school to school, along with staff and our community members. He goes above and beyond, even after the work day is done, from responding to the concerns of our athletic department and the evening custodians, to even coming in at times to ensure everything is working fine around our buildings on his own time. I have never worked beside anyone that displays the professionalism the way Scott Johnson does. Working with Scott has made me a better person. Thank you for your dedication and devotion to ISD 318...More Information
