As I write this, it is crazy to think that the school year will be starting in just a few short weeks. As Mr. Russ wrote in the last “Altitude Report” in the Spartan Sentinel, change is all around us. At Cirrus, change is just part of the evolution of our school. One of the newest changes at Cirrus will be the absence of Mr. Russ this year. Mr. Russ accepted an associate principal position with Shawano High School in mid-summer. While we are happy that Mr. Russ is able to pursue his administrative goals, we are sad to see him go. He has served this school well over the past two years, and our community will miss his passion, knowledge, and humor (though we might be grateful for the absence of his birthday song).
As we get ready for the fall, we are excited to have Mrs. Molly Radke join the Cirrus staff. She has already been involved with Cirrus Governance Council meetings and volunteering on behalf of our school. She and I attended a project-based learning training in Kenosha in July and we have been working closely since she was hired to make sure the transition into Cirrus for both her and our new students is a smooth one.
If you have any questions about project-based learning or would like more information about Cirrus, please contact me at email@example.com.
