Certified Employee of the Month
Jenny Mackey is an exceptional teacher. Walk in to her class anytime to witness for yourself students meaningfully engaged in exploring a math topic and Mrs. Mackey walking around the room stopping often to help students discuss a math problem. You will see students who have not only been taught math but been taught how to discuss math with each other. You will see students who have been taught how to conduct themselves appropriately in a classroom to learn math. Furthermore, you will see students who trust and respect Mrs. Mackey and thus work harder to learn her subject. Mrs. Mackey has embraced the idea of teaching math from multiple perspectives so that students may learn how to solve math problems their own way not just her way. This provides students the opportunity to not just do math but more importantly how to understand math. Mrs. Mackey provides students a solid foundation of math concepts so they will be ready to tackle increasingly harder math concepts in their future. I applaud Mrs. Mackey’s efforts to help students learn math concepts. Thank you Jenny!

6th grade students recently participated in an online financial literacy lesson provided by P1FCU (Potlatch Federal Credit Union) known as Banzai. It was designed to help students recognize the importance and value of money and how to properly handle it. I witnessed students discussing the possibilities and also making important understandings about money, schooling, and debt. Thank P1FCU and Mrs. Stolley for this this program at our school.
