Students Honored, Teachers Rewarded at Wengert Elementary

Teachers at one local elementary school received a gift for their hard work to improve student performance, during a ceremony Friday.

All 75 teachers at Wengert Elementary School got gift cards to be spent on classroom resources for their efforts to improve the school.

The rewards came as the Nevada State Department of Education named the school as a High Progress Reward School, which means it is a Title 1 school that is making progress in improving all students performance.

"It just feels so great. Our students work so hard it is really awesome for them to get that acknowledgement," first grade teacher Mercedes Krause said.

Krause also said kids go through supplies at a remarkable rate, and the gift cards will go a long way to restocking her classroom.
