Librarian, Coach, Role Model

Mrs. Weigel is a hardworking and caring staff member, and a very important part of Quill Lake School. She is our librarian, track coach, and the organizer of all of our “We” activities to get our school to fundraise for Free the Children. In past years she has also been the Cross Country Coach for students that have a drive for running and wish to compete. Being involved as a track coach, Mrs. Weigel has had the opportunity to be a volunteer and active team manager for the Special Olympics. She has a passion for track, and in April her passion was rewarded. Our very own, Mrs. Weigel was recognized by the HCAA for all her hard work and dedication for track and physical wellness inside and outside of the school. She is always willing to stay after school to help out during track, and is always available to give pointers and make QLS students excel in the world of sports. Her hard work and contribution was rewarded, making all staff and students very proud of all she has done. I’ve never passed Mrs. Weigel in the hallway without receiving a smile and a kind “hello”, and this is an attitude she carried with her to the track. Always encouraging, and telling students to give it their all.  Mrs. Weigel was certainly deserving of this award.

The Amazing Race

May 5th was an exciting and busy day at QLS. All kindergarten to grade 12 students divided into 8 teams to compete in Quill Lake’s version of the Amazing Race. The grade 12’s were named captains, as they were in charge of making sure everyone stayed together as a group, and everyone got a turn to participate! Unlike the Amazing Race, teams could go to whatever station they wanted, in any order they wanted. This was to avoid waiting and backups at stations. The staff members, and a few members of the community set up and ran the stations. To involve everyone, each team was permitted to take a group picture with each station leader after completing their activity. Team blue, who finished first, got an extra 100 points for doing so, and ended up coming out on top with the most points. All the elementary kids were thrilled to have the older kids hang out and play games with them all morning. We had a perfect day, not too hot, but just nice enough that shorts and tank tops were a perfect outfit to run the race. We always look forward to involving our younger with our older students, as both seem to be on the same page for awhile. For a few hours, we all work together, and learn a tip or two and sometimes life lessons from the other(younger) grades.
