Small Schools.....Get it!
I recently attended a superintendent's conference at the Lake of the Ozarks. Among several speakers, I had the privelege of hearing Mr. Manny Scott. Manny is one of the original students depicted in the movie Freedom Writers. Manny spoke for nearly two hours and not one minute was without inspiration. Manny recounted his childhood with specifics of his school career. As Manny spoke, I reviewed all of the diverse programs we offer our students here at Sturgeon R-V and realized that we do a fine job of making sure that students are not left without help when they need it. I have observed our teachers consoling students when things are not going well for them. The at-risk assistance, which we have to always have to work on, is helping students that otherwise would go without any assistance. It is such a pleasure to work in a school district our size because we can more readily recognize when students require extra assistance for success. If you ever have a chance to hear Mr. Manny Scott, you will not be disappointed. Thank you for your time!
