Hulings and studentsWho would you like to thank for being a star polisher?

“Mr. Hulings,” writes Dennis and Tessa, seventh graders at Monticello Middle School.

How did this person make a difference in your life?

Dennis says, “He is a very good coach and he pushes people to the highest they can be so that they are good students and athletes.”

Tessa adds, “He is a very encouraging person that believes that everyone can make right choices.”

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.
