Today is Technology/ Communications Recognition Day! We have some great people with strong skills in this area. They keep us in the latest technology to benefit students and staff, seem to love a new challenge and bring us fresh ideas. They advertise information daily that is sent to them by staff about what we do with students and get the word out to the community. They keep us organized and updated on what events are coming next and have a creative side. Thank you to Jim Burkhart, Brian Cone and Shane Gross. Thank you to our Student Technology Staff- Zach MacPhee, Gabrielle Crowl for all you do in the Technology realm. Thank you to Laurie Bell and Natalie Rogers for taking care of most of our online presence through the website and social media as well as ensuring the community can use our electronic signage to learn about events. If you have a few minutes today, stop some of these people and say thank you, give them a small token of appreciation or just a pat on the back.  And no, we did not make them post their own recognition message- that's why it's not nearly as eye-catching as most ;o)

A big shout-out to some amazing collaboration happening with the Drama Club and the Spring Play! We have 37 kids participating this year in Drama Club and the Spring Play. The STEAM class is building our set and have done a fabulous job so far! They have already built a wonderful balcony platform (pictured), and are building 2 fruit carts for the market scene and backdrop pieces. Another organization that wishes to remain anonymous has generously loaned us some set pieces. We have some Junior Athletes who were willing to be part of the play in a minor yet important role -- pulling the carriage across the stage! Thank you, Comets, for being willing to jump in and help! We were able to rent an actual Cinderella carriage with delivery and set up for only $150. Locally, M & M Feed is letting us borrow their wagon again this year for the market scene. Watch this spring for your chance to get your tickets to the Spring Play. These amazing collaborations are building hands-on, real-world skills for our students and your families will be able to experience the result. Thank you everyone for contributing!

Mrs. Peckham's American Sign Language class had a visitor last Friday! Mr. Trent Wade, the director of the ASL program at Delta College and a close personal friend of Mrs. Peckham's, took the time to share his experiences of being born deaf, his challenges learning sign language at age 13, his determination to overcome obstacles to graduate with a MA in education and how he navigates the daily struggles with his deafness while Mrs. Peckham translated. The class enjoyed this opportunity to learn more about deaf culture from someone who experiences it first-hand. To teach her classes, Mrs. Peckham brings in lessons from the Delta ASL classes that she's involved with, but at a slower pace with added information to enhance their learning. Additionally, a new Deaf community member visits her class every month to share about their life and struggles in a hearing world. Thank you, Mrs. Peckham, for sharing this great information about your class, we're so glad to have you with us!
