As the end of another school year looms on the horizon, thoughts turn to graduations. This year, not only the seniors will be thinking about graduating. Ten of Eagle Valley’s elementary teachers are also talking about their graduation. Included are Diane Pieper, preschool; Cindy Hudalla, kindergarten; Cheryl Taylor, grade one; Dianne LaVoie and Michele Schiffman, grade two; Wanda Hommerding, grade three; Duane Motzko, grade five; Brenda Wieland and John Sieling, grade six; and David Sobotka, computer and science. Their May 18 graduation will culminate two years of study for them and result in a master of arts in education degree. They have taken the off-campus course through a special program offered by Hamline University.
Peeking out from “Behind the Scenes” are Sarah Booker and Judi Salcido. The two Eagle Valley students were honored at an awards banquet in March for being outstanding “behind the scenes” students. They were chosen because they demonstrate strong character, reliability, and helpfulness.
