The right honorable Mayor Bob Everson presents the proclamation for National Education Week to Mitchell School District student government representatives.  (From left to right:  Londyn Schroeder, Pierre Tschoepe, Ella Johnston, Teagan Thill, Jersey Gregg, Sara Mauszycki, Lily Hauck, Claire Hegg, Warren Claussen, and Keatyn Wede.)

Amid a flurry of ‘dress-up’ days, gifts of treats in teacher work rooms, and a mayoral proclamation, the Mitchell Schools celebrated National Education Week, Nov. 14-18, in high style.  The week highlights the social, cultural, and economic contributions of America’s public schools and the commitment our country has made to them from colonial times to the present. Wouldn’t General Beadle be proud?
