Sun and Smiles
The 7th grade wing really appreciates our custodian, Sue Benjamin. Our rooms are spotless when we arrive in the mornings. Sue is always willing to help you out with problems that arise and a smile is on her face. She is a ray of sunshine to our day!
Service and a Smile
Denny, our tech, at Cohasset is amazing! It seems that no sooner do we put in a work order and he arrives to take care of the issue. He takes care of things quickly, with a sense of humor and always with a smile!!
Cookies and Caring
Mr. Bylkas brings his best each day! He is exceptionally kind and generous to all staff and students and it shows by how the students interact with him with hello's and high fives. He is known for his homemade cookies for the staff and even goes around the school to make sure everyone gets a cookie! He is a blessing to us and makes our school a better place!
We are so blessed and fortunate to have leaders that are inspiring at the high school. Today we were greeted with fresh rolls and coffee in the library for our staff meeting. It is very nice to have snacks; however, more importantly, we appreciate the love, care, and support that is demonstrated continuously by our leaders at the high school. We are so appreciative and fortunate to "work with" and "work for" Mr. Schroeder, Mr. Dass, and Mr. Forbort. ..More Information
I really appreciate how Bill Schaefer continually communicates with users! He’s so easy to work with and super positive. And, when things go wrong, he just calmly takes it in stride and works to fix it. Thanks Bill. You’re a hero!
Hats off to Angie Berg for coordinating a pretty awesome and heartfelt Veterans Day program. I think the crowd was bigger than ever and the event went off without a hitch. Thanks for teaching our kids to honor veterans!
Our new tech Chris Larson has done an amazing job so far this year. He is easy to get a hold of and is always letting you know where he is at in the process of solving your issue. When he is in the building he is friendly and everyone loves him! We are so lucky to have you on our team Chris!
Today, I saw a student who was having a rough time and carried this problem into school. And, I witnessed Hunter, another student at GRHS, demonstrate compassion, empathy, love, grace and mercy to this other student. Hunter processed the situation with him and really opened himself to this other student. I am so proud of all of our students and I know this is one reason why they will be successful as adults! I am a better teacher for knowing Hunter. ..More Information
Behind the Scenes
I think we sometimes forget how hard Lyn Rajala is working behind the scenes to make sure everything goes smoothly for us. I know whenever I have a problem or ask for a new report, Lyn is amazingly responsive and helpful. She’s a fantastic member of our team. Thanks Lyn!
I want to recognize our new principal Clayton Lindner. In just a few months, Mr. Linder has created a sense of pride in our students with his Good News Call of the Day on Facebook and Twitter. Our kids think it is really cool to be singled out for a picture with him!
