“I wanted to take a moment to let you know that the staff and students from Northeast Middle School did a fabulous presentation last week at the MCEA conference.
I have dedicated myself to finding ways to highlight the work of staff and students at NEMS as they exemplify such a high degree of poise, confidence, and knowledge. The Climate Theater students, alumni, and Mr. Lundeen were extremely professional and knowledgeable. I know the attendees went away with a great degree of respect for the accomplishments achieved around promoting a positive climate in the building and including such a high degree of youth voice and youth engagement. Barb Kapala provides an atmosphere where our young children can thrive and grow. I’m proud that she continues to work within Community Education and serves as a model for implementing a high quality program.”
