A message from Mrs. Debelak:

Hello Students and Parents,

I hope you are ready for an exciting year at the high school! I am looking forward to getting to know each of you. 

A little about me- My husband and I live in Skandia and have five children.  The youngest is currently up at Finlandia in the nursing program, last year!  I enjoy gardening, reading, and spending time outdoors.  If you see me out on the water, you will recognize me as the one in the blue Old Town canoe.  In the winter I snowshoe and cross country ski.

Outside of school I volunteer at Brookridge Heights Assisted Living Center and help with a class at our church.  I also enjoy volunteering at Willow Farm for Therapeutic Riding.

At school, I am in most of the 9th grade classes and am the coordinator for the Peer Coach program.  I also enjoy following the activities that the students are involved in and try to attend if they let me know when things are going on. 

Looking forward to a great year!
Camping at one of my favorite spots!  This is at Sunset Beach Campground in the Copper Country.
