New principal every year- This year they chose the right one. She was fabulous as vice principal, the glue that held this schools moral together. As principal, she hasn't given a bunch of lip service like the others. Students like her and can relate. The teachers are the best my daughter has ever had. Especially thankful for Mr. Rothe and his wife, they are shining examples of how teachers can motivate and inspire students. Their passion for making a difference really shows. I feel fortunate for the 3 years of the quality teaching and the safe, confidence building environment they've provided. Teachers have a tough job and students don't make it easy for them. Mr. and Mrs. Rothe obviously understand it's also tough to be a kid. I will forever be grateful for them. They might not ever realize how positively inspiring they've been, or how much their influence has made such a profound impact and difference in my daughters life. Thank you for being the angels we so desperately needed. The counselors have also been great. I can't pronounce her name, but she was also a pillar of strength and comfort, and has my deepest gratitude for her support. They will be missed next year.
