Learning is our Bridge to a Brighter Future!
This year our students have an opportunity to earn a Country Dale Cougar T-shirt exactly like the one our staff has. In fact, 5 of our students have earned them by doing something exceptional that makes Country Dale better for their efforts. Each exceptional act was noticed by a staff member and that student was nominated and awarded a T-shirt at our second assembly this year! Congratulations Ashlyn, Ben, Brianna, Sophie, Gabby,Brayden, and Sunia. Even more exciting is that on the back of the T-shirts is a QR code that links to our first student created website. On that website will be pictures of all the students who earn a T-shirt throughout the year as well as additional Country Dale information. We can thank Mrs. DeBellis for working every Thursday night for two hours with approximately 35 students who are putting their creative skills to work on this important website. Mr. Calkins, Ms. Sherri Dodd, and Ms. Corrie Larson have also volunteered to aid in accomplishing this worthwhile representation of our students' learning!
