Every member of a school community — students, staff, families — contributes to a school's success. This year, the Joliet School Board and Administration is asking members of our school community to make their voices heard. We want to know what people think is working (and what isn't) in our district. The purpose of the climate survey is to measure the perceptions, opinions and feelings of stakeholders about the climate and environment at their child’s school.
We need parents’ open and honest feedback about the learning environment.
The anonymous Quaglia My Voice Surveys helps gather a 360-degree view of the perceptions surrounding the school. We are unique in that we ask all three groups parents, teachers and students similar questions that can be compared. Please help school leaders make important decisions that affect student learning on a day to day basis, and use the link and survey access code to make your voice known.

This opportunity is brought to you by your Billings Public Library and Southern Montana Intercultural and Language Exchange (SMILE INC). Classes will be taught by Rod Gottula and Rie Kuroki. Rod is a former National Board Certified Teacher of Language Arts and high-school English teacher . He holds a master's degree in linguistics, has spent four years living and working in Japan as part of the JET Program, and is a former Japan Club Advisor. Rie is a native Japanese speaker and part-time translator who has lived in MT for over fifteen years.
Classes will meet from 5:30 to 6:10, beginning on October 11th, at the Billings Public Library, and will focus on teaching students basic spoken Japanese, the Hiragana and Katakana alphabets and various aspects of Japanese culture. The course will serve as a valuable springboard for students who wish to go on to study Japanese at the college level, those who simply want to supplement their love of anime and manga with a dash of academic knowledge, and those who have a strong desire to visit Japan in the future. We only ask that you commit to attending regularly, so that you can truly benefit from the course.
