Read Across America Week is next week in conjunction with Dr. Seuss' birthday. Schools typically have fun celebrating reading during the first week of March and we are no exception. We will be having Seuss-related dress up days, staff read-alouds, and and entire school D.E.A.R. (drop everything and read) session! Reading is fun and we need to make sure our kids are developing a lifelong love of reading! πŸ’šπŸ“–πŸ“šπŸΎ

Shout out to Mrs. Hawk & Mr. Bland's BizInnovator Class...Al and Marcy Kinney gave the BizInnovator Class a great opportunity to try their hand at designing an ad campaign for their realtor business. The students learned what realtors do, how to design marketing questions to conduct an interview, and then how to take that information to customize an ad campaign. Last Friday they presented their designs and plans to the Kinney's and did a great job! They will now take the feedback to create necessary changes and additions for their clients. Thank you to the Kinneys for working with our students. It is relationships between school and community that make small schools so wonderful!! πŸ’šπŸΎπŸ–€

Congratulations Jim Spring! Leland School is beyond proud of our own Mr. Jim Spring. He has been selected as the Illinois state winner of the Daughters of the American Revolution Outstanding Teacher of American History award!! Mr. Spring has been our High School history/social sciences teacher since 2001. Most recently, he was the brains behind a new Local History course elective for our students. He's a very active member of the Leland Town and Country Association, Bethany Lutheran Church, and spends much of his time playing and singing sweet music! Jim, and his wife Mary, live and love Leland - and that passion comes through in the classroom. I recently overheard someone say, "Mr. Spring enjoys what he does and that translates to awesome connections with the students. It's what makes him special!" Mr. Spring will receive an award at the Youth Day Awards luncheon during the Illinois DAR State Convention in April. Furthermore, his nomination will be forwarded to the National Society of the Daughters of the American Revolution for consideration. Congratulations, Jim Spring, on this amazing award and thank you for sharing your enthusiasm and love of teaching with Leland students! Jim was presented this award by Deb Davy, of the area DAR organization, along with his wife, Mary Spring, in front of the high school students and staff this morning!
