May Students of the Month
Elliott Miron of Center City, is a senior who will graduate this June. He has attended Wolf Creek full time since the 9th grade. Elliott is a very motivated student who completed his course work online from the comforts of home. The flexible schedule allowed him to work on his family's dairy farm and corn maze, as well as at a local meat market. Elliott's Learning Manager, Sandy Flint continues "Elliott is a very busy student who communicates well, updates me on his progress, asks questions, and advocates for himself quite well. I am very proud of him." The staff at Wolf Creek look forward to seeing Elliott graduate this year and to reaching his goals.
Shelby Wittibslager of Forest Lake, has been enrolled full time at Wolf Creek for two years. She has passed every class since coming to us, often with A's and B's. Shelby is a reserved and introspective individual, who puts great effort and thought into her schoolwork. Shelby gave birth to her son, Jamie Clancy Jr., at the end of quarter 2. Shelby's Learning Manager, Lindsay Jarombek, wasn't sure how this would affect her schoolwork, but she worked hard to pass all of her quarter 2 classes, and got started right away on quarter 3. Since that time, she has remained consistent each week with her increases and has not missed a deadline. According to Jarombek, "Shelby has good communication skills and will self-advocate when needed. I am very proud of her perseverance and commitment to her education!" We are happy to honor Shelby this month and look forward to seeing her continue to grow and meet her goals.
Our school is based on a “small community” school philosophy. Our philosophy includes the belief that each student, even if they have not been successful in a traditional school setting, will make significant progress with us. This progress will be lead by one caring individual who helps them in academic, as well as, non-academic areas of their lives. This caring individual is called a Learning Manager and is the center of the model on which we base our educational program. Learning Managers use what is referred to as an IGP (Individual Graduation Plan) to help students gain credits, create Basic Skills Testing (BST) score goals, create short term and long term goals and to think about their future. Our small school philosophy is shown in our student-to-teacher ratio of twenty students per Learning Manager. We believe that small numbers allow each Learning Manager to build a long-lasting relationship with their students. We also believe that each student must begin to make progress from where they begin and that progress will be self-paced for each individual. Some of our former students have seen their graduation dates pass where others graduate early. We work with each student on an individual basis, starting from where they came from and take them to where they want to go.
Our school philosophy is embedded in day-to-day interactions with students, parents, staff, and the community; as well as being evident in all working documents for our school. Our philosophy is reflected by the governing body of our school board in all financial decisions. In general all decisions are made to reflect how best to prepare students for the future. We are lead by the belief that each student should be working at their own pace to realize their full potential. Our philosophy is re-examined and analyzed each year. We scrutinize our philosophy to determine whether any revisions need to be made.
