This week was Teacher Appreciation Week and on behalf of everyone at USD 480 we hope all of our teachers felt extra special. Our teachers are the heartbeat of our district; everything that is done outside of our classrooms is in service of our teachers' efforts and mission. It seems fitting that a week dedicated to appreciating our teachers will culminate in sending another class of seniors out into the world. The LHS Commencement Ceremony that will take place tomorrow is only possible because of ALL of the teachers at USD 480. Whether they taught these graduates 12 years ago or 12 days ago, our teachers played a pivotal role in getting them across that stage. We could never truly express our gratitude in a way that would make it feel like enough; we just hope our teachers know how much we appreciate them and just how big their impact is on our students and our community, as a whole. WE LOVE OUR TEACHERS!

Today, we celebrated our fantabulous USD 480 School Nurses! From the minor scrapes and bumps to the more serious, our nurses always make sure our students are well taken care of and feel seen and heard. On top of performing their daily tasks at their individual schools they also come together to perform thousands of hearing screenings and vision tests to ensure the health and wellbeing of our students. Thank you for all you do, USD 480 Nurses!

At last night's BOE Meeting we were fortunate to also celebrated the May USD 480 Educator of the Month, Mrs. Fuller from Meadowlark! She has held several positions in her 25 years at USD 480, starting as a parent volunteer when her children first started school. She then went on to serve as a substitute, paraprofessional, kindergarten teacher, instructional coach, before her current role at the Meadowlark interventionist. She is well known passion, energy, and enthusiasm. Mrs. Fuller sought out, professionally and personally, for her insight and willingness to help. We are so thankful to have Mrs. Fuller continue to be such a tremendous part of USD 480!

At tonight's BOE Meeting we celebrated the April USD 480 Educator of the Month, Mr. Babinec from Eisenhower Middle School! Like any good coach, he brings a lot of energy to whichever sport he is coaching and also to all of his math classes. He constantly finds new ways to teach and develop students' character using the Leader in Me 7 Habits. Mr. Babinec is a passionate and dedicated educator with incredibly strong energy. Every day in his classroom he displays excitement about the math content for the day. Even after numerous years of teaching, he is always incorporating new strategies into his lessons. Most recently, students were generating charts and and predictions using March Madness basketball scores to review mean, median, and mode. His classroom is always a buzz with academic energy. We are so grateful to have Mr. Babinec teaching and coach at USD 480!

Today is School Lunch Hero Day! That doesn't really fit our cafeteria workers as they provide more than lunch and also work to feed our students when school isn't in session. But we are so happy to have this opportunity to celebrate all they do for our staff and students! Having healthy and ample access to food it vital to a child's ability to learn, so without these incomparable ladies our students would be lost. Join us in celebrating all of our USD 480 Cafeteria Workers!
