This week's IPride Star of the Week is Mr. Mike Gruber, art teacher at Independence Primary School and middle school athletic director. In any successful school district, you need a person like Mr. Gruber. He is not only an outstanding and creative art teacher at IPS, but he is an invaluable member of the IMS staff where he serves as athletic director. Mr. Gruber gives so much to the many activities he is involved in leading or coaching for our district and his contribution to the lives of students and the community in general is the embodiment of what #IPrideStar of the Week recognition exemplifies. Mr. Gruber can be counted on to carry out any job and to do it with great style, precision and effectiveness.
Mr. Gruber was nominated by Mr. Kevin Jakub, principal of Independence Middle School.
