Spartan Staff Spotlight: Mr. Weiss

By: Chelsi Knop

Mr. Weiss' life can get hectic sometimes. He has 3 jobs and other responsibilities that students hear a lot about in his open and friendly classes. Lately, though, students have wanted to hear much about his dramatic pieeating contest victory at homecoming that secured fi rst place for the senior class. Mr. Weiss enjoys teaching Advanced Placement Statistics and Algebra at Sparta, while being a father to 2 little girls and being a husband to his sweetheart Julie. "My family is everything to me. I'm 100% dad and 100% husband when I get home," Weiss said. The biking enthusiast has been teaching in Sparta for 11 years, but he's been teaching high school for 16 years. He earned his bachelor's degree at Michigan State University. While on campus in East Lansing, Weiss competed in Mixed Martial Arts.

Sparta Band Boosters welcome new High School Band Director

From: http://www.spartabands.org/

The Sparta Band Boosters are pleased to welcome our new High School Band Director, Kayla Mroczek! Kayla is an outstanding Band Director formerly teaching at White Cloud, MI. She has a reputation as a stand-out among her peers, and will provide the very challenge to our students that they have come to expect from their director -- the challenge to be their very best in all aspects of their lives, including as musicians.

The following announcement was made this morning:

I am excited to announce Kayla Mroczek as our next band director. Kayla hopes to begin at Sparta on Monday, September 27, 2010; those details will soon be finalized (White Cloud deserves some consideration). Dave Wells will fulfill both middle school and high school obligations during this transition.

... The true need for support is now: as Kayla becomes a Spartan.

New flag pole erected in honor of Bill Bloom

This summer a group of Sparta residents and patriots worked together to replace the flag pole at the north end of the Spartans football field to honor the memory of Bill Bloom, a long time school district employee and community supporter. The long list of contributors, Troop 704 & several community businesses participated in this project, demonstrating the spirit of cooperation and community involvement. This is what makes Sparta a great place to live.
