February Athlete of the Month
Please congratulate, our first two-time Athlete of the Month during the 2015-16 school year, Mallory Kubala. Mallory Kubala is a Junior forward on the Lady Devil Basketball Team and was one of the main contributing factors that led the Lady Devils to go 8-1 during the month of February. Her outstanding defense and the intensity she brought to the floor elevated her game and those playing around her. Her stats for the month of February have been outstanding. She has scored 53 points, dished out 6 assists, grabbed 20 rebounds, had 14 steals, sacrificed her body and took 3 charges, and she also caused the opposing team to turn the ball over 38 times.
Mallory also excels in the classroom. She made the honor roll and carries a 3.2 G.P.A. She is also a very talented artist. She has designed the artwork for the keepsake basketballs that are awarded to our Seniors on Senior Night. Mallory’s continuous positive attitude and hard work ethic will enable her to reach her fullest potential and be successful in the future.

In addition to band activities, Angelika has been a member of many Drama club productions at LES and is currently rated 2nd in her graduating class.
February Employee of the Month
We would like to recognize Julie Rubemeyer as our February Inspire, Engage, and Grow Employee of the Month. Julie has taught at Dayton Middle/High School for 12 years. Mrs. Rubemyer teaches English and Reading and also serves as our Disciplinary Literacy Coach. Mrs. Rubemeyer is always positive and she is always looking for ways to GROW our students!
To quote one of her many nominations, “Julie Rubemeyer continually goes above and beyond to do what is best for our students. It is evident being in Julie’s classroom that she genuinely cares about each of her students. Inspiring, Engaging, and Growing each of her students is something that comes naturally to Julie because of the relationships that she builds with her students and the challenges she provides them. Julie spends countless hours differentiating instruction to meet the unique needs of her students.”
Another nomination stated, “Julie is dedicated to our students and it shows in the way she teaches. She works hard to make sure she knows the strengths and weaknesses of each student to help them improve their reading skills. She makes it a point to get to know the students on a personal level and always has a smile and a kind word. Our students need positive role models and I feel Julie sets a great example.”
We are fortunate to have Mrs. Rubemeyer working with our students and staff!
