I appreciate the Jensen and Karen Acres staff members for continuing to offer positive learning experiences for our students during this two-year time period of transition. Thank you for making a positive difference!

I’d like to thank my sixth grade language arts teacher, Mrs. Herrera for showing me how amazing writing is! I’m going on to be an author or editor and I wouldn’t be where I am today without you! I’m sad being an 8th grader means its my last year here, but knowing you have made these three years amazing!

Derek Wilkins, Dean of Students at UHS

Shout out to Evan Whitke for helping pick up the trays in the lunchroom! This shows great character, and going above and beyond for excellence in the lunchroom!

Thank you Mrs. Wolgast for being a caring teacher!

Robert Msiando – UMS Student

I loved 7th grade the thing I liked the most is when Mr. Olson played my YouTube channel in front of the whole class!

All of the coaches at the Urbandale High School are amazing and very helpful!

Michelle Cole – Valerius Principal

Huge shout out to Shawna, Coordinator of Special Education, and Amy, elementary Academic and Behavior Interventionist, for all of their hard work and support of our special education program as we start the school year. They always put students and teachers first, and have been giving their all to make sure things get off to a great start. So grateful to work with you both to best support our students. Thanks for all you do!

Thank you, Carrie Laizure, for being the best 6th, 7th, 8th-grade counselor! I am going to miss having you for a counselor in High School!

Olivia Raymond – UMS Student

I appreciate Mr. Williams for making Language Arts interesting and engaging by starting everyday off with a “brain warm up” which is usually a interesting/idiotic drawing which makes everyone very energetic. He also makes sure that we are working hard. He’s a skilled teacher and he keeps things interesting with his sense of humor.
