The “You Are Owlsome” club here at iUniversity Prep started with a simple idea of spreading kindness throughout our school. Started by Kati Moffett, Enya Ratkic, and Sarah Jagnow, the small idea has blossomed into a school-wide act of generosity. We’ve received 115 responses so far, with 12 of those being in the month of May.  We truly appreciate everyone’s kindness and couldn’t be more proud of our fellow students here at iUP! If you would like to submit an act of kindness, please use this form. We will provide a list of all responses we receive each month. That being said, here are all the response we received for the month of May-


Dakota Manning told Mrs. Briggs, Mrs. Palmer, Mr. Clarke, Mrs. D’Aliso, Mr. Carter, and Mr. Duban, “I want to thank all of my teachers’ for everything they have done to help me this past school year. They have helped me when I have had questions and they make class exciting and fun. They are available whenever I need them (and even if they aren’t they make time to speak with me) and answer my questions as fast as they can. I appreciate each and everyone of them. I could not imagine going to any other school then this one. IUP is always going to be the school I think of when I picture the perfect school, and that is because of all the incredible teachers/staff. Thank you so much again for all your help!”
