  • WHS students reading to Elementary students
    Kids Helping Kids
    Public school teachers are the worst to admit that they simply can't DO IT ALL!!!  Teachers will take on more and more and more until they finally wear out, burn out, or give up.  However, we should have given up and asked for help years ago!  Most parents are willing to help and many already are.  Parents are the first teachers for their children.  Many kindergarten students come to school reading at 1st or 2nd grade level because they have parents that believe that learning is essential. 
    My shout out today is to the hundreds of students around our school district that are helping other students.  The district has had A+ tutors and teaching assistants for years, but it has become greater than that.  Now buildings, teachers, coaches, and sponsors are finding new ways to get students involved.  I have seen many of our athletic teams get involved with our elementary students.  High School "reading buddies" have developed to match older students with young readers.  Today I witnessed a young man at the High School escorting students with special needs to the transition house.  When young students have an older student that is willing to help them, they often try their best to impress the older student.  The older student walks away with the satisfaction of helping others. 
    Our elementary schools are also utilizing these strategies driven by the "Leader In Me" program.  The old one room schoolhouse used this concept to capitalize on learning, and once again, it proves to help all to be successful.  Thanks to all the staff who have helped these opportunities become successful. Great job to all the students that have participated, you are doing a good thing!!!
    Have a great weekend!
