Both Tartan and North high schools are preparing for one of their most popular annual events -- Relay for Life.
Tartan’s event will be held this Friday, May 17, and North’s Relay for Life will be held Friday, May 31.
State Teacher of the Year nominee Barb Halbrehder, teaching physical education at Tartan, has been with District 622 for decades, starting with her own years as a student at Tartan.
Tartan physical education teacher Barb Halbrehder and her “great group of students,” the second-hour Winter Team Sports elective class, were outdoors for some February snow football.
When former Tartan Activities Director Lee Alger heard the news that a Tartan coach and physical education teacher had been nominated as a possible candidate for Minnesota Teacher of the Year, his response was, “Wow! That’s great! That’s not at all bad for a phy ed teacher. It’s well deserved.”
