15.    Congratulations to Riece Rivera for being selected as the Badger Scholar of the week.  Ms. DeNaeyer says Riece always comes to class ready to participate and learn. We have great discussions over the book he is reading, and he is genuinely interested in what we are learning every day. He is a leader when it comes to starting discussions, and also when I ask for volunteers to lead activities in my class. He is also not afraid to hold his classmates accountable for their behavior in my class. I really enjoy having him every day.

16.    Congratulations to Sean Springer for being selected as the Badger of the Week:  Mrs. Kilmer says Sean Springer's light work in one-act is phenomenal.  This job is made even more difficult because he faces a new light board each week when we travel to other schools. He has a tough and often overlooked job.  However, we could not perform without him.  He is reliable, kind and polite, and works so well with the other crew, communicating via headset during our performances.  He has been flawless thus far, and I am so grateful to him for the commitment he has made to our production of "That's Not How I Remember It."  He deserves to be Badger of the Week.
