Last Friday students in the beginner guitar class at Washington High School held an end-of-the-year recital. Playing one song with 30+ guitars is no easy task, but these students rocked it out! This is the second year SFSD has offered guitar classes as part of the Fine Arts program, and it's just one more reason we've been named one of the Best Communities for Music Education!

Happy third-to-last day of school! Need a brief reprieve from the rain this morning? Take a flashback to last Friday, when several SFSD elementaries held their end-of-the-year field days and carnivals. https://youtu.be/C1SFkZB8-a0

On the last episode of "Spotlight: Conversations from SFSD" we heard from two groups of mother/daughter duos who work within the Sioux Falls School District. This week, we're hearing from one more! Michele Jensen has been a teacher in the District for 29 years, while her daughter, Hannah, is just getting ready to wrap up her first year teaching. Both educators currently teach at Jefferson High School, and we get to hear about what that dynamic is like from both sides of the generational divide.

Yesterday the CTE Academy hosted the Army medical trailer and the Sanford Health trailer. The Army also set up a combat life-saving station, a military vehicles station (a Humvee) and physical fitness station. The trailers provided students with digital simulation in an ambulance setting, emergency room, and trauma situations. Find more photos here! https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjBqzfN

For more than two decades, Jon Mattheis has been making music and encouraging his young students to do the same. The thrill of turning notes into songs and to literally "hearing" the growth of his students in band defines satisfaction for this Memorial Middle School teacher, who is today's feature!

As the schools days wind down, the celebrations continue! Earlier this week SFSD celebrated Assistant Superintendent of Academic Achievement Dr. Teresa Boysen who is retiring at the end of this school year. Dr. Boysen has been with the District for many years and has played an important role in all our schools during that time. Her influence will continue to shape the lives of the students and staff she's impacted over the years. In some parting remarks, she had this to say, "Life is like a book; if you never turn the page, you will never know what the next chapter holds." Enjoy your next chapter, Dr. Boysen!

A lot of work goes into creating an all-school picture! Check out this video of what it takes to get everybody placed jjjuusssttt right to get that one great photo.

After a long day at school, Abby Berke finds joy in the simple things like peace and quiet. The Lincoln High teacher would love to enroll in Advanced Foods if she could take any class at her school and if she wasn't teaching, she would have chosen a career as a talk show host! Today's Teacher Feature introduces you to Abby Berke!

At last week's Middle School Choir Festival Shane Wuebben, Fine Arts Coordinator for SFSD, announced that the Sioux Falls School District was named one of the Best Communities for Music Education by the NAMM Foundation. This is the second year in a row SFSD has been honored with this designation, and it stands as a testament to the quality our instructors and the dedication of our students. https://youtu.be/HBbG-C5VII8

Last night SFSD held the annual Native American Honoring Ceremony. This event honors our graduating (and 8th grade into 9th grade) Native American students in a way that is culturally significant and closely tied to certain practices and traditions. Congratulations to everybody who was honored! View photos from the event here: https://flic.kr/s/aHBqjBqebm View the full ceremony here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q7rM47ZiWqw

As the school year comes to a close there's a lot to celebrate! Major accomplishments, overcoming problems, moving on to the next step. Celebrations are happening often throughout SFSD, like earlier today when new first- and second-year elementary teachers gathered to commemorate their milestones. Coaching teams and admin help teachers navigate these formative first years, and they put on the celebration for them today. When we support our teachers we support our students, and our communities are able to grow and flourish. Congratulations to all!
