  21. Congratulations to Hadley Rodgers, our Badger of the Week.  Mrs. Kilmer says Hadley truly deserves to be Badger of the Week.  Hadley started the one-act season with a stellar performance at tryouts to earn an important role in the school play.  Her commitment to the group continues through her efforts at practice.  She gives each practice her all and shows her outstanding leadership by encouraging others to improve their performances as well.  She offers suggestions and motivation all while setting an example on stage.  I am also very impressed with her efforts off stage.  She has completed her college applications and is now working hard on scholarships.  Hadley, you are awesome, and I am so proud of you!
  22. Congratulations to Elli Springer, our Badger Scholar of the Week.  Mr. Cronin says Elli has been a standout in her career as a music student. She has played multiple instruments to help the band out where needed and in choir she was recently selected as a member of the Nebraska All-State Choir for the 3rd year in a row. This is an amazing honor and very difficult to attain. Her hard work and dedication to music has been a joy to watch.
