We would like to express our thanks to the coaches of the New Castle third- and fourth-grade Three Rivers Youth football team.Kyle Whitaker, Roger Janicek and Dan Larsen stepped up and took over the team at the last minute and could not have done a better job. The kids had a great time and had an awesome season (4-2, and third place in the league). They learned so much about the sport and about sportsmanship.We appreciate all the hard work and the time you invested in our children. We also want to thank Tracy Jensen for being the New Castle coordinator and Sherry Whitaker for taking terrific photos of the kids. We look forward to doing it again next year.Sincerely,Jim, Janet and Matt RickertNew Castle

It is such a pleasure to have so many great volunteers at Sopris Elementary. Every day we see so many parents helping out in classrooms.For the last few years, we have also had a dedicated bunch of volunteers who come in every week and mentor a student by reading to them during their lunch, then listening to them read. These wonderful ladies don’t even have students in school anymore. The students really enjoy the special attention, and we teachers really appreciate the extra help.I’d like to thank these ladies, Joan Lien, Joan Northrup, Eda Mae McCune, Cyndy Hallford and Susan Cashel for their dedication and volunteer spirit.Sincerely,Patty BristolELL teacher, Sopris Elementary
