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.

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
Techs are Supportive
I just want to give a quick shout out to our Tech Department. Every time we have an error, it seems like an emergency to us, but they take it in stride. I just really appreciate all that small department does to keep each of us going every day!
Supporting our Community
A gentleman came into the Bigfork office wanting to know if he could leave an envelope for Dale. I informed him that he is not in the office but would forward it on to him. He could not say enough great words about Dale. The gentleman was at the grocery store and forgot his wallet, Dale happened to be behind him and paid it forward buying all his groceries. He indicated that it is so nice to find kind people now a days!!! Not only is Dale Great for 318, but is also a great community member!!!!!! Thanks Dale for all you do in Bigfork also!!!!!..More Information
Takes a Village
One of my kiddos put their glasses under and behind (no, not a typo) our cubbies in the classroom. Our school janitor, Mike, and two maintenance staff, Justin and Rob came to the rescue.
It takes a village to meet all the needs and expectations! A special thanks to them! They really went above and beyond!
Keeping it Cool
I know this can be a stressful time of year for the Transportation Department, but you wouldn’t know it if you stopped in Greig Olson’s office. He was quick to help me out even though I knew I was taking him away from other things. I just wanted to say that we are lucky to have him in the driver’s seat!
