Hi there,

These seven brave classmates and two administrators will forever after be known as the Super SKYWARN® Spotter Squad (SSSS). As Principal and Chief Administrator, I would like to announce the awards bestowed upon each participant by me, and thank them for their loyalty and dedication to the mission. Each accomplished member of the Squad received a frame-able 8x10 certificate and bragging rights to all things pertaining to SSSS.

If you and your weather peeps are interested in establishing a similar squad, please visit: for more information. The main responsibility of a SKYWARN® spotter is to identify and describe severe local storms. Your community could use this valuable human resource to form the first line of defense against severe weather.

And it's a great excuse for a weather party with nicknames and snacks!

xoxo Tammy
