Steckler given recognition

Dave Steckler, principal at Red Trail Elementary School in Mandan, has been named the National Distinguished Principal for 2019 in North Dakota.

The program sponsored by the National Association of Elementary School Principals and U.S. Department of Education honors elementary and middle school principals across the country.

Sixty-two principals received the award this year, according to a news release from Mandan Public Schools.

"This (award) goes much deeper than just test scores, and it begins with learning about the child and then developing those relationships to be effective educators. I love creating a positive culture and climate to help students increase their learning," Steckler said in the release.

Steckler is developing plans for a greenhouse at Red Trail to help the school's fourth- and fifth-graders improve their math and science skills.
