  • Congratulations to our Teacher Tuesday winners! These staff members were selected by their students for providing excellent supports in the classroom. Thank you Mr. Mann for helping me understand percentages, decimals, and fractions when I didn’t know them. If it wasn’t for Mr.Mann I would’ve gotten a bad grade. Thank you Mr. Johnsen for always being super helpful. He helps me stay organized and always answers my questions. Whenever I need someone I know I can relay on him. He is super supportive. Mr. Mann & Mr. Johnsen come to the office and see Ms. Kopiak to have your pictures taken with the wings!
