I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of my mentees for their hard work and dedication this year. It has been a pleasure working with you and getting to know all of you this year. Being your mentor, I have learned SO MUCH about resiliency and dedication through all of you. I know that there were many changes that needed to be made and many things were out of your control, but I hope that I was able to support you the way you needed. Please remember that I AM ALWAYS available to you for support and appreciate the relationships we have built!
Kudos to Mrs. Mary Dyer, 3rd Grade Teacher at Hawk Hollow Elementary School, from Agnieszka Szumilo-Goral, Parent at Hawk Hollow Elementary School
I just want to take a minute and send you a brief note about Mrs. Dyer. I would not be surprised if U-46 received messages from other parents about how amazing and dedicated a teacher she is. During this very challenging school year, Mrs. Dyer truly does her best to help kids with the remote learning challenges.

For a job well done in setting high expectations for student engagement. Your ability to meet this particular student’s academic, functional, and social-emotional needs has truly made a difference in re-integrating him back to a school/social setting. Thank you for your service!
Kudos to The Coleman Elementary School Staff, from Gloria Helin, Mentor Specialist
I have had the opportunity to help support Coleman with ACCESS and IAR testing. I wanted to take a minute to thank all of the Coleman staff for being so pleasant and accommodating to me while I was there. I felt very welcomed and enjoyed meeting many of you … whether it was a quick hello in the hall or even some time conversing. I also enjoyed seeing many of the familiar faces of people I have known or worked with in my 20 years at U-46. Thank you for all of your hard work and dedication this year! You should be very proud of your school and your students. They are pretty amazing!
