Allis Beginning of the Day Team! Great work by all the staff at Allis who greet students, help them cross the street, help them off the bus, welcome students arriving on special transport, the teachers who meet their classes outside at their cones every morning, the office staff who answer questions and check in students, the multilingual staff who support parents and students, the crossing guard, and everyone who makes the start of the day safe and happy for students!

Congratulations to Sarah Niesen, a third grade teacher at Nuestro Mundo Community School! She was surprised with a $5,000 check from Staples as part of their “Thank a Teacher” contest. As part of the contest, the school will receive $5,000 from Staples, and Niesen will also get $2,000 for personal use. Niesen was one of just 20 teachers nationwide to be recognized as part of the contest.

Nuestro Mundo principal Joshua Forehand says she is deserving of the honor. “Sarah Niesen is the kind of teacher that comes early, stays late, pours everything she’s got into her classroom and into her students, connecting with their families, providing fun and engaging activities for students every day,” Forehand said.

I am completely blown away by the grace, kindness and dedication of all the Olson Elementary school staff. It takes a true village to educate these kids, and during a pandemic it must take many, many hands. I am in awe of the countless hours you have all spent to make these first few days so welcoming for new parents. I want to thank all so much for going the extra mile each and every time. You are helping us set the bar high!

HUGE shoutout to Judy Christensen at La Follette. She has been an amazing support for the past three years. She always answers questions, is gracious in her responses, and truly shows her care and compassion for students and families. Thank you so much, Ms. Christensen! We couldn't do it without you.
