Please join the Renaissance Student Steering Committee in congratulating...
​​Traci Bolton
​as Staff member of the Month!

Audrey Krone said, "Mrs. Bolton is always there to help students and has a lot of patience. She has helped me build the confidence to play my guitar in front of people and I have now joined a band and I really enjoy doing it. I would not have joined if it wasn't for her kind and encouraging words."

So well-deserved! Way to go, Traci!

2017 Renaissance Departmental Student of the Quarter - Senior Class

​It was my pleasure to nominate Jacob Krieger as the Senior Class recipient of this award:

Jacob is an awesome young man with a heart of gold.  You will often see Jacob cheering on his friends at sporting events and laughing in the hallways with them.  I can always rely on Jacob to have a funny story or lighten any mood.  When I think about students who epitomize the qualities of a Lancer, Jacob easily comes to mind.  He is a true and loyal friend who is kind to all those he meets.  I have enjoyed watching Jacob come into his own this year, and I look forward to what the future holds for him.
