Celebrating Coach Kessler Recap
by Misty Johnson, PTA Communications Chair

A thoroughly good time was had by all at the Celebrating Coach Kessler event held in May. Many friends, former and current students, former administrators, and family were there to support Coach Kessler and wish him well as he begins his time as Superintendent.
The PTA collected letters and drawings for a tribute binder for Coach, as well as presented Coach with a multi-tile tribute wall, a framed t-shirt signed by staff,  a cake donated by Ji's Cakes, and a golden whistle. Thank you to all who came and to all who helped make the event possible.
