QUOTE to PONDER: “Winning is fun.... Sure. But winning is not the point. Wanting to win is the point. Not giving up is the point. Never letting up is the point. Never being satisfied with what you’ve done is the point.” —Pat Summitt, first NCAA basketball coach to accrue at least 1,000 wins, past women’s head coach at Univ. of Tennessee.
All Students: Please check your school email. Mr. Sutter has been asked to forward you a link for a survey from Gage County USDA. This survey is being sent to all the teens in all the schools in Gage County. It will ask you for your honest views of our county/community. While your specific answers will remain private, we will be able to see if you have completed the survey and will keep encouraging you to take the time to respond. If you are unable to connect to the link, please contact Mrs. Cullison.
