Ms. Oswald showed PASSION and COURAGE to think outside the box when she suggested to Dean Williams that we could have a community meeting outside in the stadium. 

Naomi Fleckman showed her PASSION and talent for art by kindly volunteering her time to help decorate the Math department’s new bulletin board. Please stop by to view Naomi’s stellar work.

Eli Maples and Malachi Johnson displayed TEAMWORK when they stayed back to help re-organize the seats at the end of the class period.

Elliette Zukowski, Skylar Couture, Ellery Biehler, Ainsley Smalley, and Marielle Bumgarner demonstrated TEAMWORK when they volunteered to take pictures for yearbook spreads that weren’t directly their responsibility. Way to GO BEYOND!

I am dedicating my spring lacrosse season to the Jason Foundation.  This past year, my sibling lost his best friend to suicide, and many of my close friends grew up with him.  Upon hearing this news, I was compelled to try and make a change and help people who go through these mental challenges.

The Jason Foundation focuses on the prevention of the “Silent Epidemic” of youth suicide. They offer educational and awareness programs for young people, educators, and parents with tools and resources to help and identify these situations.

I have created a GoFundMe and 100% of all donations will go to the Jason Foundation.  Look for information on upcoming fundraisers soon too.

Thank you for the support.  It means so much to many people around the world and me!!


Thank you, 

Miles Edmiston
