Staff and Community Partners Receive Board Accolades

Board Accolades Brandeis Coshow was selected as the 2016 SHAPE Idaho Middle School Physical Educator of the Year. The award will be presented on Thursday, October 6th at 12:30 p.m. at the annual SHAPE Idaho Conference held at Lewis and Clark Middle School in Meridian.  

This honor is reserved for teachers who:

  • Conduct high quality physical education programs
  • Utilize various teaching methods and plan innovative learning experiences to meet the needs of all students
  • Serve as a positive role model epitomizing personal health and fitness, enjoyment of activity, sportsmanship, and sensitizing to the needs of students
  • Provide service to the profession

Ms. Coshow states on her website, “Ultimately, E.E. Cummings expresses my philosophy best: ‘We do not believe in ourselves until someone reveals that deep inside us something is valuable, worth listening to, worthy of trust, sacred to our touch. Once we believe in ourselves we can risk curiosity, wonder, spontaneous delight or any experience that reveals the human spirit.’ My goal is to be that someone who lifts the veil for all my students and my own children.”

Dear Blaine County School District Board of Trustees:

I would like to recognize The Hunger Coalition and Community Library for the incredible support provided to children in Blaine County. This summer, lunches were once again provided to children in Blaine County in need of nourishing meals.  In addition to the traditional Lunch in the Park served at the Balmoral Park playfield, children from north of Ketchum to Carey were provided with summer food.

The Hunger Coalition and Community Library partnered to secure grant funding and then launch Bloom. Bloom provided children with nutritious lunches and opportunities to check out books from the Community Library. The Bloom truck and trailer helped students stay nourished and engaged with literacy throughout the summer while schools were closed. This mobile lunch and library provided services to children who live on the outskirts of our community. In the words of Naomi Spence, Associate Director of the Hunger Coalition, “It is time to bring these services to the kids who need it the most.”
