A sign of of the times: Scribner’s assistant principal recognized



The school’s Parent Teacher Organization put together the plaque and also gave Raake one to hang in his office.

Raake said sometimes, he didn’t know temperatures reached freezing or rain was pouring down until he got outside to update the sign. He said if the weather was nice, he might ask a student to help, but he never turned it over to another adult.

“I hope I haven’t been overbearing, not that I wouldn’t turn it over to someone,” Raake said. “I was the one that did it.”

Bush said he thinks Raake kept doing the job because it gave him a chance to make the students feel good about themselves and what they’d accomplished. He said they were glad to do something for him.

“The kids were so supportive of it and we had an opportunity to get the entire student body out there to recognize him,” Bush said. “I think their enjoyment is a testament to the work Mr. Raake does here at Scribner. He just does a great job of building those relationships and going that extra mile for the kids and the staff. It was just a way for us to express our thanks to him.”
