October 18, 2023

At the September school board meeting, two amazing students and faculty members were recognized for their dedication and hard work in the district.

Student Spotlight:
Emma Jenkins - Stagecoach Elementary - 4th Grade

Emma Jenkins is a student at Stagecoach Elementary. Her principal, Carol Skiba, describes Emma as an outstanding, hard working, positive, and helpful fourth grader. Mrs. Skiba says "She is a huge help to us when loading buses at the end of the day. She always holds the hand of a little one to ensure they get on the right bus. She works hard and perseveres."

Emma started showing significant growth in the second grade. On her last NWEA MAP test she scored high growth and high achievement in both Literacy and Math. This means that she is excelling in reading and math at a level that is above most of her U.S. national peers! Mrs. Skiba says Emma deserves this recognition for all her hard work and the kindness she shows to her peers.
