We Are Proud • We are proud of Ms. Berglund and the Student Council for working hard to put together a fun and successful homecoming. • We are proud of all the regular bus drivers, Shawn, Donnie, Mike, and Lisa, as well as Mike, Roger, Jaron, Sean, and Nick for all the extra driving. • We are proud of our 7-12th students and staff for participating in Community Service Day. • We are proud of Construction class students Ben Andersen, Adam Thompson, Devon Kuck, Aaron Nelson, Tanner Olson, and Riley Kuznia for working on the dugouts outside of class. We have worked on Saturday, October 1st and after school both Wednesday and Thursday, the week of Oct. 10th. They came because they knew time is short to get work done this fall and they want the dugouts ready for our team in the spring. These students all spent several hours working on preparing the dugouts for new front walls and covering them in plywood, along with significant demolition and repair of rotted wood, and never complained once about the hard work or the less than ideal weather.
