We are receiving information that schools are receiving phone calls that are implying that there is an active shooter in the school building. The information I have received is that these messages are pre- recorded. I have met with law enforcement and all building administrators were briefed today about this issue. We are informing our staffs and secretaries to be vigilant in our duties to students.
As a parent, if you hear anything that may help us make certain all students continue to be safe in our school district, please let your administrator know or contact the district office at 267-3146.

Classified Employee of the Month
Mrs. Riebli has been a fixture at Mt. Hall School for 13 years! She first began frequenting the school as a parent volunteer in the classrooms of her three sons. She later transitioned to running the computer lab and library, before finally gaining full-time employment working as a special education paraprofessional in the resource room.
Mrs. Riebli is best described as an “encourager” who takes great pride in the accomplishments of her students – both big and small. She has developed over the years a variety of positive teaching strategies that motivate her students to read more books, practice their spelling words more diligently, and learn their math facts more completely. Mrs. Riebli is also actively involved in monitoring student progress, collecting and recording data, supporting students in their general education classroom, and constantly reminding them to be responsible and caring individuals.
Mrs. Riebli has also been the intermediate grades “lunch lady” for many years. It is not an easy task to manage three grades at lunch, but Kathy does it effortlessly, even finding time to chat and build relationship with students from all grade levels.
Kathy’s enthusiasm for her students’ learning and successes is complimented by her ability to keep them engaged and gaining in academic achievement. Kathy sees all the possibilities and potential in her students and strives to help them see the same. Her work ethic, positivity, and dedication to her job make Kathy a valuable asset to the staff at Mt. Hall and very deserving of this recognition.
Congratulations Mrs. Riebli!
Certified Employee of the Month
Mrs. Ross, and her three terrific daughters, are completing their second year at Naples School. Her position opened in September of 2013, and as a school we were nervous about the quality of candidates available at that late of a date – but we hit a proverbial “home run” with the hire of Mrs. Ross.
Mrs. Ross currently teaches an energetic group of 27 third graders. Her passion for teaching, coupled with her background in inquiry based learning makes her classroom a place where fun and learning coincide. Her students are always engaged and enthusiastic about learning due to her teaching style and personality. Whether in the classroom, the halls, the playground, or the cafeteria her love and dedication for students is always on display.
Mrs. Ross is creative, talented, and willing to go the extra-mile for her school. This has been no more evident than in her role as student council advisor. Through her leadership student council was born at Naples School, and students are now learning about fundraising, budgeting, community services, public relations, planning, and spirit activities.
As her principal, I have been impressed with Melodie’s professionalism, fresh perspectives, and willingness to be a team player. She is a genuine and sincere person who truly emulates the phrase “our kids are worth whatever it takes”. She has been a welcome addition to our staff and has infused excitement and energy into our school. We are lucky to have her and she is more than deserving of this recognition.
Congratulations Mrs. Ross!
