Mrs. Holly Bauer - QHS Educator of the Year

Mrs. Bauer is our amazing mathematics teacher here at Quest. She builds relationships with kids and is always willing to go the extra mile to help our students. Some comments from our staff include:

“Mrs. Bauer does a great job of gaining the respect and trust of her students. She is willing to go the extra mile for all the students at Quest. She does everything she can to help students be successful at school and away from school. She is always lifting students up, giving them the confidence they need to succeed.”

“Holly Bauer is phenomenal when it comes to working with each and every student who passes her way. Students who have previously been unsuccessful in math may even find they have a knack for it after working with Mrs. Bauer.

In addition to helping students become math whizzes, Mrs. Bauer develops meaningful relationships with students. She is just amazing.”

Revisions to the 2020-2021 Academic Calendar

To further support teacher learning, planning, and work during the 2020-2021 school year given the challenges of COVID, the Board of Trustees approved revising the school calendar by changing two student instructional days to two student holiday/staff development days. The two days are Friday, November 13 and Monday, January 18. Students will not attend school on these days unless they are required to be used as make up days.

We were made for this!
