Leon Kessler and Emily

Who’s your star polisher? “Mr. Leon Kessler,” writes Emily, a student at Cascade Middle School.

“He stayed on topic and made classes interesting!” she writes.

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.
