Board Recognitions
Mr. Schlifke

Mr. Schlifke has helped to create a school culture that values collaboration, risk-taking, and authentic relationships built upon one enduring emotion- love. It is common to hear the words, “I love you” throughout the building throughout the day. More importantly, it has become instinctual for teachers, staff and students, to be helpful, to look out for one another and to celebrate each other’s successes. Mr. Schlifke eloquently shared this message at TedX Zionsville a couple of weeks ago, and his talk was a crowd favorite. The video should be available online sometime this winter. We are proud of Mr. Schlifke and appreciate the impact he continues to have on our school community.
