Mrs. Lenz Receives Horizon Award

We had a special celebration this week!  Our own fourth grade teacher Mrs. Sarah Lenz was chosen as a Kansas Horizon Award winner.  The Horizon Award is given each year to just a handful of teachers, across the state of Kansas, who have distinguished themselves in their first year of teaching.   Dr. Randy Watson, Commissioner of Education for the state of Kansas, surprised Mrs. Lenz on Tuesday with a phone call telling her about the award. I’ve included his quote below because it expresses so nicely how we feel about Mrs. Lenz!  “These 32 educators are shining examples of the great talent we have in Kansas,” Watson said. “I want to thank them for their time and dedication to the teaching profession. They are not only teaching Kansas students, they are instilling a love of learning, inspiring and igniting passions. We are fortunate to have such quality teachers in classrooms across Kansas. It is because of them that we move closer to our vision of leading the world in the success of each student.”

Congratulations, Mrs. Lenz!
