SENTINEL TRIBUNE Wednesday, September 21, 2016 Page 8 Greetings from WWG Schools, It is Homecoming week in Charger Land and I hope that the weather cooperates all week. We are off to a great start with great students and an amazing PreK-12th grade staff. Our fall musical this past week was spectacular!!! We had 7-12 stu- dents involved and Bill Richards, yet again, showed us why he is the one of the best theater directors in the State. Add in the factor that Bill works such a variety and age of students puts him at #1 in the State. Nice work cast and crew! Coronation on Monday night is always a fun tradition with student and staff skits as well as talks by the coaches and the final crowning of our King and Queen. The royalty then have the week to enjoy the fun. Tuesday we'll have an activity for the 7-12 students on dis- tracted driving and impaired driving. The students will have the opportunity to operate small scale vehicles while texting and experiencing other distractions. Thursday evening we have a home VB match against MCC and I hope we have continue to have great crowds. Our girls are having a great season and have only lost to Windom. Let's hope for a Homecoming win. Friday afiemoon is the annual parade down Westbrook's main street with our elementary students in town enjoying the fun. The parade is followed by a pepfest at 2:30 in the gym and everyone is invited! Friday night our boys will get a win! They have had a couple rough weeks with some close games and coming up short but it's time for a victory! I don't have much of a memory of a kid in school but I sure don't seem to remember having to deal with what seems like some real tough tragedies in our country, our state and recently in our schools. I can only imagine the tension of many of our families in the region with students at St. Cloud State wondering if their kids were in the mall when an idiot with a knife went after folks this past weekend. I can't imagine the pain that some of our kids have suffered in the past year after losing parents to some pretty rough circumstances. We can give them a hug and we can pray for them as well as pray for peace for our schools. All of our employees are important to me as well and our children and they are a huge part of what makes us such a great district. With small towns and small schools, if someone hurts, we all hurt. Rachel Christians, our business manager is extra special because she came from some pretty special alumni parents, a pretty special church in Dovray, a pretty spe- cial Westbrook Wildcat school, and has been a pretty special public servant with the city of Westbrook and now the WWG school. Rachel's 3 children tragically lost their dad last week. A benefit meal will be served Thursday from 4:30 - 7:30 p.m. at the school lunchroom. All proceeds will go to assisting Rachel and her family. Best wishes to all our farmers in the next month and for a safe harvest. We have much to be thankful for and I am hope- ful for a bountiful harvest.
