This week’s shout out goes to our #HSSD maintenance staff. While we all enjoyed two weeks of a winter break to recuperate, our maintenance personnel were busy taking care of our facilities and trying to accomplish as much as possible while we were out of their way! To all of our custodians, technicians, mechanics, and all maintenance support staff and leadership in between - THANK YOU for all you do to keep our campus and classrooms running smoothly. Thank you for your work and attention to detail in making all school sites premier centers for learning and activity by our students. Thank you for your time before, during, and after school, and during all breaks for staff and students to ensure that our doors are open to this community.


Please also see an anonymous shout out here for Ms. Christie Spriggs at our #HSSD Gardner STEM: “She is the very essence of what a great teacher should be: kind, funny, patient, smart, creative, intuitive, accountable, dependable, thirsty for more knowledge, eager to create challenging opportunities for her students and is absolutely the sweetest person. Her students adore her! She greets her students every morning with their own unique handshake that they create. She is always looking for ways to be innovative in her classroom so that each student will receive the instruction that they deserve. She arrives early to tutor and stays late to prepare meaningful lessons for the students that she truly loves. She holds them accountable for their actions and praises their triumphs. She is incredibly adept at meeting her students where they are because she understands that even amidst the demands of curriculum that sometimes students need it “their way”.  I count it as a true blessing to know this outstanding woman.”


Trojan ‘Good Things’ is a weekly shout out from #HSSD Superintendent Dr. Stephanie Nehus to those individuals in our school community who are doing amazing things! It is her goal to communicate all the positives happening in #HSSD.
