16.          Congratulations to this week’s Badger Scholar of the Week, Brysen Limbach.  Mrs. Kilmer says Brysen selected challenging classes for himself this year and is doing well in each of them.  I am particularly proud of his efforts in Pre-Calculus and celebrated a great first quiz score with him.  This week, I also witnessed his perseverance and resiliency in a situation where he could have just as easily quit, but he saw his hard work pay off.  In addition, I admire his positivity and joyful nature.
