Updated Tues., 5/8 – The week of May 7 is “National Teacher Appreciation Week”. Thank a teacher for making public schools great!
The RHS Student Council will be honoring the Rhinelander High School Faculty throughout this week for their commitment to students and a quality education. Please join the students, school administrators, parents, and the general public in honoring all staff members that make public schools great for every student.
“Rhinelander High School is an invaluable resource contributing to the success of our community,” said Karolyn O’Melia, counselor at Rhinelander High School.
During the remodeling of several district buildings this past year, teachers made adjustments to their teaching to continue to teach effectively in a changing environment. Through community wide support the schools were able to create new classrooms and other facilities to enhance the already excellent teaching. Their continued support demonstrates their appreciation to RHS and its staff. This week provides an added opportunity to thank and appreciate the hard work of educators.
“Teachers do so much more than just stand in front of a room and talk for seven hours,” said associate principal David Ditzler. “Teachers work significant hours before and after school preparing for student needs.
“Teachers take time to listen, to counsel, to encourage, to support, and to push; all done in the effort of making students more prepared to be the productive adult we hope they will be,” continued Ditzler. “We have all had a teacher that has inspired us to chase our dreams. They have given us the tools to achieve these goals. That is the power of a teacher.”
