Super thanks to our very own Colleen Mitchell who put together a fantastic day in Emporia, Kansas. We started out the day with a wonderful orchestra concert from Emporia Middle School - awesome job guys!! Then we toured classrooms in Walnut, Village, and Logan Elementaries, Emporia Middle School, and the Turning Point Learning Center. Some of the highlights included seeing their excellent dual language programs in action, the Literacy First initiatives K-12, innovative collaboration with community members, problem-based learning, and the outstanding special needs program at Logan. Emporia is doing wonderful things for students, and we are inspired to share the good news with our own districts.
