Misty Velke and Nolan

Who’s your star polisher? “Mrs. Misty Velke.”

“She is very nice and takes time to help us if we need it,” writes Nolan, a student at Monticello Middle School.

When Monticello’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.
