  • Evergreen Middle off-center with Schuh’s imminent departure

    Principal Kristopher Schuh knows the name of every one of the 682 students at Evergreen Middle School.

    Not only does he know their names, he knows a little something about each of them, according to the teachers. That is part of what makes Schuh such a great principal, and what makes the faculty and staff sad that he is leaving EMS at the end of the school year. Schuh is joining 15 of his colleagues in the School Innovation and Effectiveness Division at the district level.

    In the five years that Walsh has been EHS principal, he has made friends among faculty, parents, staff and the community.

  • 'A whole lot more than chickens'

    Returning to a simpler time when people grew the food they ate is a dream of those involved in community gardening efforts.
