On Service Day, May 16, students from Mrs. Shumaker's seminar class gave back to the community by raking leaves at the Bauder house.

We had two WatchDOGS at the Elementary School last Friday, Jason Suhr (Pictured with daughters Mikayla and Emma) and Jason Germain (pictured with Mrs. Brownlee's class)! Thanks for volunteering and helping us out!
7th and 8th grade students, along with their Junior and Senior mentors, in the Peer 2 Peer program worked on a team building activity in which they had to camouflage paper comets around the Jr/Sr High building for the staff to find. Four teams were successful in hiding their comets so well (in plain sight) that they were not discovered! They were able to choose prizes as a reward for their expert camouflaging abilities. Can you find the hidden Comets in these pictures?
Last week, led by Mrs. Lagalo, the elementary students spent time practicing positive self affirmations. They made self portraits with affirmations, shared homemade affirmation cards with others, and made an Affirmation Board to be enjoyed by all. They did a great job showing love and care for themselves and others.

All three of Coleman’s acts were chosen to be a part of the Traveling Show! This week, the students, along with Mr. Burkhart and Mrs. Tallman traveled and presented the show to all the participating schools!

Monday's Disney-themed band concert was a great success! Thanks to everyone involved for preparing such an awesome show for us to enjoy. Can't wait for next year!
Our senior class deserves some serious praise! These two recent ceremonies celebrated the academic accomplishments of our seniors at the top of their class; the Kiwanis Clubs, and the MSAC Banquet. The Kiwanis Club recently honored the top 10% of students in our senior class: Brayden Servis, Brooklynn Lattimer, Ty Murray, and Paige Lynch (not pictured). The MSAC Banquet honored all seniors with a 3.5 GPA or higher that were also involved in an MSAC sport or academic activity. Keep up the awesome work, Comets!
