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."

Our first district-wide Wacky Wednesday Challenge is October 11th for all students and staff. Our challenge is to wear sunglasses to send off summer with style! The class 7-12 AND the class K-6 with the highest participation percentage will enjoy a warm cup of apple cider.
Because attendance is directly related to student achievement and earning a high school diploma, each grade level is participating in an attendance challenge every month. Sophomores won the September challenge at 95.6% attendance! They earned being able to leave early for lunch to be the first ones in line for Mrs. Voyles' yummy entrees!
Coraline was recognized by her teacher, Mrs. Stratton, for showing compassion and empathy. Mrs. Stratton states, "we had a friend in class who was really struggling... Coraline walked up to him and asked if she could give him a hug-- through this compassionate moment, every one of the other students also went up to the struggling friend to give hugs. The whole class loved on this friend. It was a beautiful show of empathy and love."
Paul was recognized by his teacher, Mrs. Ledbetter, for showing compassion. Mrs. Ledbetter states "A student hadn't eaten enough for lunch and was feeling bad. Paul jumped right up during reading intervention to offer them a snack he had in his locker. What an incredible classmate and friend."
Ms. Wasley and her art students have adopted a new approach to art! It is a Student-choice/Teacher Supported approach where students choose individualized projects, they discuss and agree upon certain parameters and grading criteria and they support each other in reaching their goals. It is a dynamic approach that elicits student engagement at its finest!
Ms. Wasley and a couple of students hiked the Anthony Lake Loop in her latest hiking club adventure!
