A positive report about Trewyn School

From the EmergePeoria e-mail box...
"Trewyn seems to be really turning around this year. I don't know if it is due to Ms. Andrews, or Carl Cannon/Elite group, or all new teachers and the facelift the school has gotten, but there is definitely a different feel this year, the kids are behaving much better so far, and the teachers seem to be really invested as well.

We had an evacuation drill recently and I couldn't believe how well it went. Kids were in straight lines walking in an orderly quiet "elite style" manner, all the way to Harrison and back. They went into the gym at Harrison and all sat down in an orderly fashion (I didn't go in to the gym, so I can't say for sure) but I can tell you that when they were leaving the gym, still in that orderly fashion with the older kids holding the hands of the younger kids, still in straight lines, I almost cried, I couldn't believe it. That would never have happened last year.

I told every kid that I came into contact with that day how proud I was of them and actually had a 7th grader, who is a member of the elite leadership team tell me, "It's because this year the teachers care about us.".

I think they cared last year to be honest, at least most of them, but the teachers didn't have the support this team has either. The same student told me that boot camp made the difference and said " we need it again, because kids are getting bad again"."
They will be having it again, Phase 2 was set to start that week, with assemblies.
