This week’s student of the week is Anna Plank.  Anna was nominated by Ms. Strohecker because Anna Plank is currently working 4th block as our Science Department Intern. She has met and exceeded all of our intern expectations and is self motivated.  Recently she has gone above and beyond with some additional responsibilities: Testing improvements with Mr. Lillard on a FCC Bio 101 Photosynthesis lab and writing a Heat Transfer grant with Mr Parry and Ms Adams. Meanwhile, she continues to help us all on our science lab prep/ clean up. As this week’s student of the week, Anna will receive a coupon for one free admission to an Oakdale High School event.  Way to go Anna!
