Along with easing into a new school year, Leslie M. Stover Middle School students, faculty and staff had to learn to cope with the passing of beloved 8th grade social studies teacher, Mike Rush. After the loss of Rush this summer, the Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) team devised a plan to keep Rush’s memory alive among those both familiar and unfamiliar with him. "We not only want to honor him adult-wise, but we felt like it was important for other students to know who he was," Stover Middle Principal Michael Garity, said.
