Tigers of the Week: Emma Benson & Ann Landreville

Congratulations to Emma and Ann, our TIGERs of the Week for November 21 – 25

Emma Benson – Girls Hockey

Emma made 41 saves on 42 shots Tuesday in our season opener and we won the game in OT, 2-1. When it’s game time and the team needs a goalie to perform, Emma is always going to give it her all. Her effort shows in games like these to be prepared for several odd-man rushes coming back our way and still making the saves.
Ann Landreville – Dance Team

Ann is a senior captain of the Showstoppers Dance Team. She has been a tremendous leader at practice, and a positive role model for new dancers. She is determined to reach our team goals and demands more from herself than others.


During a “Taste it Tuesday” Tatchos were introduced to our high school students – they loved it.

Tatchos are potato rounds with shredded romaine, cheese and other nacho toppings.

Celebrate Education!

Celebrate American Education Week
and Public Schools

By Dawn Holtz, Education Hutchinson President


November 14 – 18 will mark the 95th annual observation of American Education Week. The AEW tagline, “Great Public Schools: A Basic Right and Our Responsibility,” highlights the importance of bringing together educators, parents, students and communities in a unified effort to build great public schools.

Today’s teachers, education support professionals and substitute teachers do more than teach basic skills. They nurture and inspire children despite obstacles. They help students learn essential skills not always measured in testing, such as critical thinking, conflict resolution, cooperation and problem solving, which helps students throughout their lives. These people are valuable assets to our schools and community.

I invite you to visit our schools to see amazing educators and students in action and learn how you can become more involved. Ask how you can contribute to a child’s success. We’ll be glad to speak with you and find opportunities for your involvement.

We are proud to make a difference in the lives of your children by being an essential partner in their education. Let’s take time to celebrate all of our work on their behalf.
