Students Meet Their Weekly Goals

At the beginning of January we implemented a new system to keep track of our student's progress and to help them meet their goals! Students are expected to complete a certain amount of daily assignments and each day they meet their goals they are entered in a drawing we have every Friday. Mr. Waechter, our director, randomly selects five students who have met their goals that week and allows them to take a chance as they spin a wheel to win prizes. The students have become very motivated to meet their goals since Mr. Waechter has started this activity and we're so excited to see our students make remarkable progress into the new year!


We've had an exciting year thus far full of interesting and knowledgable people from our community. We're so grateful to have the support of the following businesses, colleges and other organizations!
