Remember back to childhood having fun with friends playing hopscotch and other games at school?

Second Creek Elementary PTO members worked with Second Creek AP Sal Conca and a parent-artist to help their students make more of those memories.

“I wanted to give them games that are fun and easy and that kids would enjoy,” said parent-artist Amanda Bair. “It means a lot to me to do this because our schools do so much for our kids.”

Seven oversized games were painted near Second Creek playgrounds for students to play. The group effort to create the games included (L to R): PTO board members Janina Lucero, Mellisa Lubick, parent-artist Amanda Bair, Tiffany Dudley, Second Creek Assistant Principal Sal Conca, and Abby Engle.

You know, he does look like the guy from Dirty Jobs…

In November, Facebook Watch’s Returning The Favor and host Mike Rowe visited our own Vikan Middle School to thank Coach Dave Franks for the difference he’s making there as a volunteer shop teacher. Plus, they had a surprise for him to help continue that work.

Host Mike Rowe sat in on a class, joined a field trip, and spoke with students, Vikan Principal Michele Saller, and Dave’s wife Sherry to learn more about the impact Coach Franks has on the lives of his students at Vikan. And then came the surprise…

We won’t ruin it for you; watch the whole episode for the big reveal!

Thank you to Mike Rowe and Returning The Favor for shining a light on Coach Franks and his work. And, of course, many thanks to Coach Franks himself for serving Vikan students in such a unique way!
