"Although I am a former student of his I can gladly say that when someone asks me who my favorite teacher is/was I can gladly say Mr. Wesley. He was just the most amazing teacher in and out of class. He was at school early and late in order to help you understand in class. He also coaches sports and takes the 8th graders on their yearly field trip to Washington DC. He has done so much for the school and students. He is always also an extremely funny teacher! He knows ways to help you in class and he’s always fair. Mr. Wesley is the most amazing teacher I've met in all the schools I've gone to. All of the reasons above are all the reasons why Mr. Wesley should win Teacher of the Month!" - Megan, former student

CONGRATULATIONS to Mr. John Rigby, 4th Grade elementary teacher at Olson Elementary School & our MAY “Teacher of the Month” WINNER with Home State Bank on Star 105.5! Enjoy the attached pictures and a copy of the winning letter below!
"Mr. Rigby teaches a lot of valuable life lessons. He is teaching us the value of giving through a program called Mustang Big Give. He has established a grant with D200. Each student is to take their grant money and raise money for various different charities of their choice. Money is then raised during school hours with a sale of items bought/made by the students. He is big on teaching respect to my class and helping others. Mr. Rigby also does many hands on experiments like tapping a maple tree to get sap and boiling sap in the classroom to make maple syrup, and building mini electrical cities out of tiny light bulbs, wires, mini motors, and switches. He has a way of making learning fun and interesting. Mr. Rigby values respect, friendship, and caring for others." - Kaitlyn
