I spent most of the week out of the building. But, boy did our Owls have some fun! On Thursday they got to go to Sidwell to see their middle school production. It was particularly exciting for our students performing in The Wiz because they got to see the stage where they will be performing and kind of analyze the process. They had lots of thoughtful questions and comments afterward!
Betsy Wendt has been a counselor here at Hearst since January of 2012. She came to us mid-year from Marie Reed where she worked as a bilingual counselor, and although we don’t officially have a bilingual counselor here, Ms Wendt does a lot of Spanish translating for us. She also works with kids outside of school in programs like Big Buddies, which gives them access to fun field trips on Saturdays. Ms Wendt has a daughter who graduated from high school last year and she loves to travel.
