The First SMS "SHINE" Awards!

Two weeks ago when we announced the last call for Teacher of the Year voting, one sixth grade student came to the office wondering where he could cast his ballot.  When we told him that only staff could vote he was disappointed and asked; "Who knows better than the kids who the best teachers are?"  It was a fair question.  So we instituted the first ever SHINE awards, student chosen teacher of the year awards for each grade level and for electives.  After a week of voting, and with all lunch periods reporting, we are prepared to announce the winners:
  • 6th Grade - Ms. Lori Clark
  • 7th Grade - Mr. Andy Lathren
  • 8th Grade - Mr. Dan Segal
  • Electives - Mr. Eric Zeigler
All are pictured below with the award's founder.
