Real Estate Broker/Owner with F.C.Tucker 1st Team Real Estate

   Scoring in the TOP 10 % on the ISTEP exams statewide :

Congratulations to the Great Team of Teachers and Principal Jerry Lasky @UTMS, not to mention the students and parents who are dedicated to learning that made this wonderful achievement possible!

Only 230 schools across the nation were named on 9/9/08 by U.S. Secretary of Education Margaret Spellings as No Child Left Behind-Blue Ribbon Schools (only 8 of these named schools were located in IN).  

When moving From Lake County To Porter County, Indiana over a decade ago, Jeff & I both felt strongly about not only saving money on property taxes, getting more home and land for the dollar,but #1 on the list of must have's, was making sure the community we settled in had great schools!

The newness and facilities of both the Union Township Middle School and Wheeler High School are incredible.                                                                                                                     

Our daughter, (now attending university) graduated from this school system and it prepared her well for college!

Jeff & I enjoyed being ROOM PARENTS during our daughter's middle school years! The boys in our Kelly's class especially enjoyed having Jeff around - he was the only DAD at that time as room Dad :)

I actually was on the committee or panel that helped select Mr.Lasky as a candidate for consideration for principal of UTMS!

Hi Grace, this is a testament to the school and parental involvement.  It takes more than teachers to make a school what it is for our children's education.  They may be on the front lines and layout the road map but the parents are the backup to reinforce all those good works.  Nice post Grace and a great tribute to the area too!
