From our friends in the Freeman School District:
The entire Freeman Family wants to thank the thousands of people and organizations from our community, our state, and beyond for providing us with overwhelming support during our darkest hour. Your support has lifted us up and inspired us as we move along in our healing process. This tragedy has truly brought out the best in everyone—our students, our staff, our parents, and our community—and we are so incredibly proud and grateful.
On Monday morning, our Freeman Family came together to welcome our students back to school. It was a really good day for Freeman. Watching our students walk back into the High School, arms and hands linked, surrounded by staff and family, was truly moving and something we will never forget. In a week filled with emotion and grief, this was such a positive moment for our students, staff, and parents.
Along with all the displays and messages of support from around the region, volunteers and donated food and services, we have over 65 volunteer counselors from surrounding school districts and agencies along with therapy dogs here on campus providing invaluable services to all students, staff, and parents. These resources will be available for as long as needed.
We know the healing process will be long and difficult, but your outpouring of love and support is so helpful and will never be forgotten. Thanks to you, our Freeman Family is Freeman Strong.

TOLEDO HIGH SCHOOL EDUCATOR NAMED
CLAES NOBEL EDUCATOR OF DISTINCTION
Jim Echtle, an educator at Toledo High School in Toledo, WA, was recently selected as a Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction by the National Society of High School Scholars (NSHSS). A role model to pupils, Jim was nominated by a student for outstanding dedication and commitment to excellence in the profession.
Each year student members of NSHSS are invited to nominate the educator who has made the most significant contribution to their academic career for the Claes Nobel Educator of Distinction award. This honor recognizes exemplary educators whose passion and devotion inspire their students to grow and develop as scholars, leaders and citizens.
The National Society of High School Scholars seeks to advance the goals and aspirations of high-achieving students through unique learning experiences, scholarships, internships, international study and peer networks. From attending the annual Nobel Week festivities in Stockholm, to internships in major corporations and government agencies, pre-college summer study programs, and more than $2,000,000 in exclusive scholarships awarded annually, NSHSS is continually seeking new ways to provide lifetime learning and growth opportunities for academically talented and accomplished student leaders, and the educators who support them.
“Dedicated educators who exhibit a commitment to excellence deserve our highest praise and appreciation,” said NSHSS President James W. Lewis. “Through our Educators of Distinction program and the grants we provide to support professional development and enrich classroom instruction, we hope to acknowledge and encourage the vital work of the teachers, counselors and administrators who are shaping the intellect and character of our young scholars.”

Lewis and Claes Nobel, senior member of the family that established the Nobel Prizes, the National Society of High School Scholars recognizes academic excellence at the high school level and helps to advance the goals and aspirations of high-achieving millennials through unique learning experiences, scholarships, internships, international study and peer networks. NSHSS members become lifetime members. At each step along the way - from high school to college to career - NSHSS connects outstanding young scholars with the resources they need to develop their strengths and pursue their passions.
