Happy Administrative Professionals' Day / Week 2021

Submitted by shelley.heaton on Mon, 04/19/2021 - 10:35

We all know that it takes many people to run a school, and some of those people are the secretaries or the correct term, the Administrative Professionals.

 We would like to take time out to thank three of those people who help make our school what it is today.

At most schools, the secretary is a key player in communicating with parents and community members about what's happening at school.

That is the case with these three as well.

During the month of April, we are encouraging families to donate gently used books that they no longer need and drop them off at Tabitha’s Donation Bins at the following schools:

Oh, Yah - Nailed it! Mr. Hawk's ALC construction class is helping construct a home near Salem Hills High School.

Students are helping lay concrete, tying rebar, framing, and maintaining the construction site.

Students will also install siding and help roof the house as the semester continues. It has been so fun to see the progress each day with it being so close to our school.

Mr. Hawks does an amazing job of teaching these students the necessary skills needed to build these houses.

Shout out to the students and Mr. Hawks for the amazing job they are doing.
