When schools closed in March, the traditional end-of-year band concerts that showcase a year’s worth of practice and progress were effectively canceled. Rose Hill Middle School (RHMS) Band Instructor, Angela Laulainen got creative during the remote learning period and had her students record their parts at home.
Symetra Heroes in the Classroom: Nova Frank
Students in Nova Frank’s Special Education Transition Program know they have a teacher who will help them succeed. The Finn Hill Middle School teacher is one of 16 Seattle Heroes in the Classroom to be recognized during the 2019 NFL season. Symetra and the Seattle Seahawks will recognize her during the December 2 game in a customized Seahawks jersey, where she will be an honored guest.
As part of this award, Frank received a $2,000 donation to benefit her classroom, two tickets to the Seahawks vs Vikings game, a pre-game VIP sideline experience, an in-game HawkVision spotlight and a “Heroes” award certificate.
