Hands in the sky for John and Colton. Mrs. Murphey has recognized them as Husky Humanitarians for Citizenship! She states, "I’d like to nominate a couple of boys for your Husky humanitarian award. After today's games I was the last one in the gym, putting things away and gathering things people left. John and Colton had been playing basketball, but when they saw me, they didn’t hesitate and without being asked got to cleaning. They cleaned the whole student section which was by far the messiest area. John picked up a bottle of paint that was left behind and I could hear him say “Mr. Johnson would like seeing this out here”. I appreciated their help and initiative to jump in!" Thank you John and Colton for modeling citizenship like rockstars!
High School Halloween Bash!
Nikki was recognized by Mrs. Chagas for showing Compassion. Mrs. Chagas states "Nikki got to school and before walking in the door she noticed that another student was struggling. She gave the student a hug and asked if she could help. Nikki not only offered the student a hug but she asked the student if they would join her for breakfast. But wait, there is more, Nikki continued to offer help with anything that she could in order to make the student not feel sadness and instead, feel warmth. Thank you Nikki for seeing a friend in need and using your kind heart for good."
Let's show up in purple and represent being Huskies with pride!
