Jacob Bechtel and Michael

Who’s your star polisher? “Mr. Jacob Bechtel,” says Michael, a student at Cascade Middle School.

“He gave me a second chance,” writes Michael. “Now I have a B instead of a D+.”

When Cascade’s staff and students connect, our stars shine!

As part of our district’s focus on student connectedness, we shared part of a poem called “The Star Polisher” with our middle school students and invited them to consider how Longview Public Schools staff have made a difference to them. Read about more of our stars and star polishers here.
