Bruce Goodwin has come into Murphy this year and done a fantastic job! He listened and learned and then has done everything in his power to find success. He constantly shows how much he cares about the kids, their families, and the staff. We are so lucky to have him, and so thankful that we do!
I was asked to email Greig Olson at the Bus Garage about a student who left his backpack on his AM bus (thinking that the student would get it on the way home). Not long after, Greig called to see what color it was and then surprised us by showing up at Cohasset with the backpack knowing it would make a difference in this student's day - especially for this student. Thank you, Greig, for going out of your way!..More Information

Wearing Many Hats
During a busy concert season, Betsy Sween (One of two choir teachers at RJEMS) took time in class to teach the importance of respecting other's differences. She works hard to protect her student's emotional well-being, and encourages social-emotional learning among peers. On this day, she wore silly hats that she personally made (but enjoys wearing) to teach kids to keep bad opinions to themselves, and also to respect other's interests. She told a personal story to all of her classes of how she was once hurt by a person's negative remark about her hat, and had to choose to let that opinion go. Betsy also read a story to teach her 6th-8th grade students to be OK with who they are...More Information
Handling Challenges with Grace
Julie Rasmussen is truly the glue that holds us together. She handles each challenge with beauty and grace and treats everyone with kindness. Many of the changes that are currently happening in the district affect her job directly, but she keeps on smiling and serving others no matter how much is thrown her way. Thank you, Julie!

Every day I am thankful for the leadership our Administrators provide at the high school. They demonstrate their care by greeting teachers and students every day, stopping by classrooms to check in and are always available for questions, solutions or simply an ear to listen. They are team players who are reliable and effective with students and are always striving for growth. Thank you Principals for all you do at the High School!..More Information
