POETRY OUT LOUD 2017
Destiny,a sophomore, was the school winner of the Poetry Out Loud Competition. She represented Selkirk in the regional competition in Spokane in February. The National Endowment for the Arts and the Poetry Foundation have partnered with U.S. state arts agencies to support Poetry Out Loud, a contest that encourages the nation’s youth to learn about great poetry through memorization and recitation. This program helps students master public speaking skills, build self-confidence, and learn about their literary heritage. This is the second year that Destiny has represented Selkirk at the regional competition. Congrats Destiny!
2016 EDUCATOR OF THE YEAR
Beginning in 1999, the Selkirk School District Board of Directors has recognized one staff member each year as “Educator of the Year”. The board makes the selection based on nominations received from students, parents, community members, and other staff. A perpetual plaque housed in the Selkirk High School trophy case contains a list of all past award winners.
The educator selected must have a reputation for professionalism and have the respect of both staff and students. The award winners are individuals that go out of their way to help others and consistently look for new ways to positively influence the lives of students.
On June 8, 2016 at an assembly with students in grades 6-12, the Superintendent Nancy Lotze announced that this year’s Educator of the Year was Cathy McGeorge, the district’s sole special education teacher. During the presentation, Mrs. McGeorge was compared to a variety of superheroes including Superman, Wonder Woman, and Elastic Girl.
Superintendent Lotze described this year’s Educator of the Year as someone who appears to be disguised as a mild, manner teacher complete with glasses, but in actuality is a hardworking superhero who works at an amazing speed, leaps tall stacks of paperwork in a single bound, and stretches herself to work with students from preschool to twelfth grade.
According to Principal Greg Goodnight, Mrs. McGeorge forms positive relationships with all students, but especially those who struggle with academics or social situations. A common theme in nominations from students included the word “help”. Helping a student provides hope and fostering hope is one of the most powerful positive impacts a teacher can make. Mrs. McGeorge’s teaching peers noted in nomination forms that “she encourages by letting students know she sees special traits such as leadership, athletic ability, kindness, and perseverance” and that Mrs. McGeorge is the first to volunteer to take on new challenges and projects.
In addition to teaching and coordinating special education programs, Mrs. McGeorge is also responsible for the Learning Assistance Program in grades 5-8 and the senior class advisor this year, helping the class conduct fundraisers and plan their senior trip which she also chaperoned. Additionally, she is the school district’s assistant high school volleyball coach and the assistant high school track coach.

For the grant to buy iPads for Selkirk Students!!!
During an assembly on November 8, 2013, Principal Larry Reed and cheerleading coach, Kathy Johnson, coordinated the Selkirk Middle/High School students in an iPad-illuminated “thank you” to Dave Riggleman and Teck! Superintendent Nancy Lotze also presented Mr. Riggleman with a commemorative plaque. Through Teck’s Community Investment program, Dave Riggleman was able to access funds to purchase 85 iPad Mini units for students in grades 9-12. The existing full-size iPads, from our AP English grant last year, were then reallocated to 8th grade students creating a 1:1 learning environment for all students in grades 8-12!
Teck’s Community Investment program, under the education component, funds programs and initiatives designed to enhance access to educational resources and training opportunities, including early childhood education, primary and secondary schooling, …with particular emphasis on programs of relevance to the mining, metals and energy industries.The integration of technology will increase student engagement and application of skills important to all future student careers including communication, reading, math, science, and vocational areas! This program has the potential to change the way education looks at Selkirk and will allow the district to utilize digital learning resources that can be updated quickly and replaced at little or no cost. This amazing opportunity would not be possible without the efforts of Mr. Riggleman and the gracious donation from Teck!

|....SELKIRK ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
Selkirk Elementary recently received a Title I Academic Achievement Award and was honored along with 11 other schools by Washington State Superintendent of Public Instruction Randy Dorn and Governor Jay Inslee. The national awards, given through Title I, Part A of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, recognize schools that are meeting federal Adequate Yearly Progress and Annual Measurable Objectives standards in reading and / or math, as well as closing the opportunity gaps between white students and traditionally underrepresented students. “I’m proud of all these schools,” Dorn said. “The fact that what they’ve done is being recognized on a national scale speaks very well to how they’re doing and how Washington state is doing.” Gov. Inslee praised the work coming from the schools. “These schools are doing excellent work in bridging opportunity gaps and helping students succeed,” he said. “Congratulations to each of these schools and to the teachers, school staff, parents and community members who have been such an important part of their efforts.” Click here to view the application process.
